  • A very detailed museum of Estonian history. Worth the visit
  • Tallinna Linnamuuseum is a small museum with a collection about the history of the city. Their style of presentation is very amusing and narrative. The quality of the exhibits is, compaired to the other museums in Tallinn, of a high standard. The employers there are very friendly and eager to please.

  • Closed on the Easter vacation.
  • A return on the past of Tallinn, and the history of Estonia.
