Mobile phone Astrid enables you to make phone calls for free. When you are kneeling in front of Astrid, it is about you and a machine. The relationship is honest.
Visitor about Astrid: “We went to KUMU museum with kids to make phone calls with Astrid. The kids were excited and the security guard amused when he heard my kids talking to Mummu (grandmother). I was embarrassed – all the visitors heard the conversation at the lobby! Mummu did not understand a thing and entertained the audience for all the money.”
You can call to Astrid during the opening hours of the museum:
Wed 11 am–8 pm
Thurs–Sun 11 am–6 pm
The number is + (372) 533 35 571
