  • 12pm Out of the Box” tour (EST)

  • 2pm “Out of the Box” tour (ENG)
  • 15:00 – 18:00 Pin making workshop & taking photos with the biggest working repro camera in Estonia

OUT OF THE BOX TOUR TYPA is known for its tours. As a working museum, it is possible to visit TYPA with a guide, and every visitor has been able to experience our museum with a guide for fourteen years, even when coming alone!

However, the birthday tour must stand out from the ordinary. This time, we are thinking outside the box of the pie and ink can, aiming to venture from our cozy building onto the streets! During this tour, we will reveal our secrets and talk about:

  • Where and how TYPA began?
  • Where Gutenberg fits in?
  • How many languages has “Fahrenheit 451” has been published in?
  • Why left turns may not be feared?
  • Who spilled ink at TYPA?

And many other things.

The TYPA out of the can tour takes place on March 23 at 12pm in Estonian and at 2pm in English. Meeting point – Aparaaditehase courtyard, near the “Kolm Tilli” restaurant.
