  • It is quite difficult to find, despite the clear address. Small banner. Small porch. A small museum nevertheless calls the sea of sensations. Creepy. Scary. Camera interrogation room. The KGB, one word

  • Really interesting overview of a very important part of Estonian history. Exhibits are really informative. 
  • Is a place very interesting, in where is can learn enough of the history of the KGB in Estonia. Very creepy, sad, and scary, but good Museum
