Vabamu Museum of Occupations and Freedom

Add to Favourites Your favourite!

Vabamu focuses on personal narratives about crimes against humanity to help us better appreciate justice and freedom. The museum explores Estonia’s recent history, occupations, freedom and the individual stories behind them.   

The permanent exhibition ‘Freedom Without Borders’, which speaks of occupation, resistance, freedom and recovery, consists of five parts: crimes against humanity, Estonians in the free world, life in Soviet Estonia, the restoration of independence, and freedom.

En route through the museum, the visitor is accompanied by an e-tour guide specially designed for the permanent exhibition. The guide takes the visitor on a gripping and contemplative journey through the paths of recent history.

The museum offers e-tour guides in seven languages (Estonian, Russian, English, Finnish, German, French, and Spanish) and has a special exhibition for children.
