Create an itinerary including Dominican Monastery Claustrum
Tour the medieval Dominican Monastery Claustrum to see dormitories, living quarters, and a library where generations of monks spent their lives through the centuries. Stroll along hallways where your voice echoes in the darkness and eerie Gothic statues hide in corners, then visit the large chapel with its crumbling brick walls. In the cellar of the complex lies a mysterious pillar: legend says it possesses forces that elevate you to a higher spiritual state and bring good health to those who come near it. If you're interested, the staff can organize thematic tours and programs at the site, which involve storytelling, costumes, and lit torches throughout the monastery's medieval walls.

  • The building itself was beautiful and well worth the visit. We went inside (we had our Tallinn card so it was free entry). I would have been so disappointed had I paid in! The rooms were impressive...

  • Is a small place, but very medieval by the look of it. We just caught some glimpses from the outside.

  • This is petite but beautifully preserved. Accessed via an ancient archway into the courtyard. The steps to the museum are old and uneven.

  • Cant comment on the museum but the yard outside was worth seeing.
  • Access via Müürivahe Tänav. Very disappointed. 5 euros to get in was robbery. A few rooms many displaying art which I considered innaproprraite for the former building use (near naked women , women floating in bags??!!). No map on laminated guide. Would recommend going instead to the cathedral on Vene 18, and paying 2 euros to access the cloister and courtyard. Much more atmospheric.
  • Oldest monastery in Tallinn, but the visit was disappointing because it was just several rooms and just few object to see. Library wasclosed. And paper guide it wasn't enough for information, there wasn't map on the paper guide what was a little bit tricky to go through museum.
  • Nice but felt like not really worth 5 euros per person.
  • Not worth 5 euros, just few rooms. And no map, just a page to read.
