  • This museum is very interesting to visit, but only to those who are interested in the history. The Museum consists of 4 floors and basement. In the basement of the porcelain of different centuries and represented different peoples. On the first floor of a temporary exhibition, we had weapons, as well as closet (Tipo wardrobe) and reception. On the 2 floor showing items 12-15 ages (middle ages). On the 3 floor of the 17-20 century. On the 4 floor of a model of 1825 years Tallinn, as well as paintings and photographs of various time Tallinn. So who has time and desire to go. Entry 4 euros per person.

  • Good place to visit to get an overall picture of Estonian history. A lot of things, images and text provides a good picture of Estonia. Allocate about 2 hours to visit to collect information
