Housed in a 14th century merchant house, this comprehensive museum provides an excellent introduction to Tallinn’s history.

It covers all the vital aspects of the city’s past and its development. Various sectors of medieval society are explained using a combination of texts, artefacts, life-sized models and sound effects. High-quality displays on the upper floors are devoted to 20th-century life, its turbulent wars, Soviet occupation, and finally Estonia’s re-independence.

Get to grips with the history of Tallinn at this small but well laid out museum. Helpful staff on hand to give a few details in limited English (my Estonian is worse!) Read more
