A. Le Coq Beer Museum

Tartu, Estonia

Tartu is the birthplace of Estonian beer industry and has been a beer town for nearly a thousand years. In order to perpetuate the history of industrial brewing, the Beer Museum was opened on July 1, 2003. The Beer Museum is located on the territory of A. Le Coq in a malt tower, built in 1898. The museum is located on six floors and the total number of exhibits amounts to approximately 2000. The exhibition explains brewing traditions worldwide and in Estonia, starting from the ancient Egyptian beer culture until the present times. You can see both, the homebrew making tools and old industrial beer equipment.

Naturally, the museum also includes beer corks, bottles, jars and barrels. The museum exhibits speak of the students’ beer-drinking traditions; we have also displayed the prizes and awards from various global exhibitions. All museum visits are concluded in the museum pub, where the visitors have a chance to taste drinks produced by A. Le Coq. Upon special request, tours can be arranged to the production facilities.

Lincoln Memorial

The Lincoln Memorial is an American national monument built to honor the 16th President of the United States, Abraham Lincoln. It is located on the western end of the National Mall in Washington, D.C., across from the Washington Monument. The architect was Henry Bacon and the designer of the primary statue was Daniel Chester French.

Dedicated in 1922, it is one of several monuments built to honor an American president. It has always been a major tourist attraction and since the 1930s has been a symbolic center focused on race relations.

The building is in the form of a Greek Doric temple and contains a large seated sculpture of Abraham Lincoln and inscriptions of two well-known speeches by Lincoln, 'The Gettysburg Address' and his 'Second Inaugural Address'. The memorial has been the site of many famous speeches, including Martin Luther King's 'I Have a Dream' speech, delivered on August 28, 1963, during the rally at the end of the March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom.

Since 2010, approximately 6 million people visit the memorial annually.
