  • Wonderful Museum which is housed in a step away from the old town square. Several halls. The building of the former prison. Here is the history of the development of photo, stunning exhibits: the camera almost from the beginning of the photo and items manifestations of photos, interesting snapshots of the 19th century, which faces! Now running an exhibition dedicated to the bike in Estonia, you can take a picture with a school bike beginning 20 century. A great movie about the history of the photo. Very cute guardian of the Museum. Since building medieval-steps and transitions from room to room is very narrow and impassable for people with disabilities.
