    Kiek in de Kök Fortifications Museum

    Kiek in de Kök Fortification Museum forms a museum complex over 500 metres long that includes four towers: Kiek in de Kök, Maiden's Tower, Tallitorn Tower, and the Gate Tower of the Short Leg (Lühikese jala väravatorn). The fortification museum also includes mysterious underground bastion passages, which house the Carved Stone Museum. The Kiek in de Kök exhibition provides an overview of the warfare of the past. The bastion passages were built in the 17th–18th centuries. The exposition of the bastion passages introduces the history of the defensive structures and the most important military events. The bastion passages and the Carved Stone Museum can be explored with an audio guide, which we ask you to download to your phone beforehand. Note! From 1 November, the Kiek in de Kök tower will be closed for renovation. During the works, the rest of the Kiek in de Kök Fortifications Museum will remain open, including.

    Free with Tallinn Card!

    During free Museum Sundays (07.07; 04.08; 01.09; 06.10; 03.11; 01.12) only the bastion passages with the Carved Stone Museum will be open. The Maiden Tower, the Stable Tower and the Gate Tower will be closed.

      I only went to see the bastion passage, so this review is just about it. Very disappointing. The idea is nice, but how it's executed is horrible. Considering the history of the passage, it could have... Read more comments

      There’s over 400 meters of passageway carved into the rock which has been used over the centuries from defence to shelter. There are videos to watch en route and an app to download which has audio... Read more comments
