The Estonian War Museum - General Laidoner Museum

Add to Favourites Your favourite!

Drop in to get an overview of Estonia's military history as well as the present-day activities of the Estonian Defense Forces.

The museum makes its home the former summer residence of Commander-in-Chief Major General Johan Laidoner (1884- 1953), who led Estonia's forces during the War of Independence. It serves as the leading military history research centre and museum in Estonia, and its displays are continuously updated and expanded.

Founded in 1919, the museum remained active until 1940 when its collections were relocated by the Soviet Army. It was reopened in its current location in 2001.

The museum has an extensive educational programme, organising thematic excursions and workshops. Visitors can buy souvenirs and books from the museum's gift shop to bring a piece of local military history home with them.
