KGB Museum, Tallinn

Inspirock Rating:
3.7/5 based on 750+ reviews on the web
Housed in a hotel that was once a hot spot for foreign visitors, KGB Museum presents a stark reminder of the secret police network that operated in the Soviet Union. Owned and operated by foreigners, the Hotel Viru became a target of KGB monitoring. Take a guided tour (offered several times daily in English) to see the KGB's secret operating room, which has been more or less untouched since the Soviet collapse in 1991. You'll see the workstations operatives used to spy on the hotel's guests, which connected to an extensive system of electronics wired into the building. This museum is accessible only by organized tour. Reservations are required; be sure to call in advance to arrange your visit.
