    Museum of Photography

    Antique cameras, old photos and even a re-created early 20th-century darkroom can be viewed in the Town Council’s former prison.

    Housed in a 15th-century building behind the Town Hall, Tallinn’s Museum of Photography traces the history of the art, which came to Tallinn a little more than 150 years ago. A large collection of photo equipment is on display, as are numerous prints and items related to the photo business of times past.

    Entrance is free with Tallinn Card.
