Estonian Sports Hall of Fame


Estonian Sports Hall of Fame is a a brand new and spectacular part of our museum where we honour the greatest athletes and sports influencers of Estonian sports. Hall of Fame was opened together with museum’s exhibition “The Story of Estonian Sports” and it’s first members are 50 of the most prominent sports personas of last century.
