    Museum Epping Tower

    Medieval arms and armour are the focus of the kid-friendly, hands-on displays in this 15th century tower.

    A chance to dress up in medieval armour is one of the main draws at the Epping Tower while interactive exhibits on each of its floors make it a great stop for the entire family. Visitors are invited to try on a selection of chain mail and armour, as well as handle medieval replica weapons – a hugely popular activity, particularly among would-be warriors. A variety of medieval handicrafts are also presented here on a rotating basis.

    Entrance is free with Tallinn Card.
