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.

This museum concentrates on Tallinns history rather than Estonias history which is detailed in the History Museum on Pikk. This one is housed in a typical old town merchants house and the exhibits... Read more

"WHAT WOULD BE THE DIFFERENCE between a (national) history museum and a city museum for the capital?"
