We are inviting you to celebrate the Kadriorg palace and park ensemble 300th anniversary!
22. 07. 2018
The birthday is full of lots of activities for families all around the Kadriorg park and museums. The theme of the activities are focused to various professions through 300 years: emperor, gardener, dance teacher, guvernant, architect, messenger, artist etc.
In Kadriorg children’s museum Miiamilla we are introducing old fashioned profession – GUVERNANT. Guvernant was working as a home teacher for children in high class and nobel families. The emperor’s children had lessons of languages, mathematics, music, art etc. At the 19th century in Kadriorg park children were playing and learning through games with their guvernants and nursemaids.
In the beginning of 20th century Kadriorg park was place to enjoy walks in the nature and step in to the small cafeterias to have a slice of delicious cakes or ice cream. During the Republic of Estonia there was created Kadriorg’s children’s sports area – Youth Park, which was focused to health, outdoor activities and physical education.
Nowadays Miiamilla is a place for families with children, who enjoy playing and exploring in the museum. So the museum itself is like a teacher or guvernant, who gives possibilites to learn through hands-on exhibition, games and activities.
