  • Worth a quick look through as it definitely has a few different items. The building itself is not particularly interesting- but they have presented items in a nice way - definitely a focus on Estonian...  more »
  • So an exciting exhibition on the first floor. In the other two floors are the permanent exhibitions which was very nice for a tourist like me with limited insight into the Estonian art and culture. Is recommended.

  • First, it is important to understand that in soviet time all household stuff was designed by designers. No anonymous Chinese products were available. In this museum there is the permanent exhibition with the cult household stuff (design dishes, toys, furniture etc) and they do also different temporary exhibitions, also with the touch of the soviet era.
  • Really liked the fashion exhibition from 60s-70s Estonia as well as textiles and glass work. The building itself is quite nice.
  • Big Museum, with many different type of collections. I have really appreciate the part of exposition regarding works with glass.
  • Some very nice stuff. Their permanent exhibitions are amazing. I really enjoyed it. The others, although I enjoyed them and if you like contemporary art/design you will too, I found it very pretentious.
  • The Applied Art and Design museum's permanent exhibitions tell a concise and interesting story of Estonia's design history. When I visited, the rolling exhibition featured the history of Tarbeklaas, the national Soviet glass production industry of Estonian.

Where to stay in Tallinn

As Estonia's largest city, Tallinn has a wide range of options for accommodation during your travels. Many of these--from economical bed and breakfasts to a luxury hotels--center within the Old Town or just outside of it, giving you easy access to historical sights and a range of activities. Get more for your money by venturing a little farther away; try a guesthouse in one of the surrounding areas for an authentic Estonian experience. Be sure to book accommodation in advance if you are traveling in the summer, as hostels, hotels, and bed and breakfasts are known to book up fast for the months of July and August. This is especially true for weekends from May through to September.
