The Eesti Pank Museum is running a special programme to celebrate the Night of Museums
The Eesti Pank Museum at Estonia pst 11 will be showing an audiovisual performance called The Secret of the Great Safe as part of the special programme for the Night of Museums on 29 August. Throughout the evening, visitors will be able to find out about the history of money that has circulated in Estonia and to join a game hunting for information.
The theme of the Night of Museums this year is Time in the Night, and as part of it the Eesti Pank Museum will be showing an audiovisual performance specially recorded for the evening starring the great Estonian figures Lydia Koidula, Carl Robert Jakobson and Jakob Hurt, who all appeared on the Estonian kroon banknotes. The one-time head of state and Governor of Eesti Pank Jüri Jaakson also makes an appearance in the light-hearted show written by Loone Ots.
