    Bank of Estonia Museum

    It's all about the money – and the finance – at the Estonian central bank museum.

    You'll find it in the corner tower of a historic building that once housed the Estonian Nobility's Credit Union.

    Here games, interactive machines and video exhibitions tell the complex story of money, aiming to pique the interest of all visitors, even those who don't know much about finance. Guests will learn the role of money in society, have the arcane mysteries of central bank policy explained and get an overview of how the financial system operates. You will leave with a better grasp of how the euro works as well as how the central bank manages its external assets, payment methods and payment environment.

    The museum has a shop and a currency exchange point – the only place where Estonian kroon can still be converted into euros.

    Free entrance.

      First of all the entrance is free. It shows the history of money in Estonia and explains economy as a whole, many interactive screens. Most of the exhibition is in English and Russian too.
