The Carved Stone Museum, part of the Kiek in de Kök Fortifications Complex and located in the Bastion Passages, invites visitors to explore the history of the town through decorative carved stones.

The Carved Stone Museum is located in the Inger Bastion tunnel, which dates from the 17th century. The museum displays the Tallinn City Museum’s collection of carved stones: portals, pillars, coats of arms with family signs and symbols, relief-decorated window jambs and tombstones from the 16th to 19th centuries.

The museum’s display consists of more than 600 decorative fragments that were once part of the buildings in the Old Town. Most of these are decorative stones with a story to tell. The exhibition, titled ‘The City of Ruins’, is brought together by atmospheric lighting and different thematic chambers.
Carved stones were one of the main export articles in medieval Tallinn and were sold to Sweden, Denmark, the Netherlands and Northern Germany. The stone carvers from St. Olaf’s Guild in Tallinn were mostly Estonian.

The Carved Stone Museum is part of the Kiek in de Kök Fortifications Museum. You can enter the museum either through the Kiek in de Kök artillery tower or the Maiden’s Tower (Neitsitorn) museum-café. Please bear in mind that the temperature in the tunnels is 10-12 ⁰C year-round, so be sure to wear something warmer during summer months; the museum also has blankets.  

The Kiek in de Kök Fortifications Museum, including the Carved Stone Museum, is free with the Tallinn Card.
