The Tallinn Museum of Orders of Knighthood has many different programmes for children, teenagers and young people. And this summer we launched our internship programmme. In July we welcomed our first interns! Youngsters from the age of 17 took advantage of the possibility to find out what it would be like to work at a museum! For two weeks students from Finland worked besides curators, researchers, guides and welcoming staff.
For certain, having an acute interest in history is essential to enjoy working at a museum, but our research laboratory also provides a good platform for those who are science enthusiasts.
One of our young interns was most interested in research, and with some guidance from our team he performed the analyses, both chemical and historical, of two new objects that have just recently been added to the funds of our museum.
His research made it possible to determine, that one of the coronets, initially thought to have been made for the coronation of Edward VII, in 1902, was actually made more than half a century earlier, for the coronation of Queen Victoria!
He also got a chance to show off his skills by making a presentation of his work at his high school in Finland and a research poster for us.
If you are a student (17+) and are interested in trying yourself as a museum worker at the Tallinn Museum of Orders of Knighthood next Summer, make sure to check our site for more information in February 2020. We look forward to sharing this experience with you!
This Wednesday the Tallinn Museum was host to the wonderful ladies of the International Women’s Club of Tallinn (IWCT). The members of the Club met for their monthly morning coffee event and had a tour of the museum.
Of special interest were the Insignia and history of those orders whose members were actively involved in charity work. One of the main purposes of the IWCT, which this month celebrates its 25-year-anniversary, has been raising funds for local charity organisations, which, in the spirit of orders of knighthood, protect the orphans, the disabled and the abused.
And on this occasion, many women were bringing donations for the upcoming and very popular Christmas Bazar (to be held on the 25th of November at the Radisson Blue Sky Hotel), which each year with the help of the international community, Embassies and local businesses raises close to 40.000 euros for charity.
