The museum itself is quite small, but interesting enough. Through the back is a cafe which serves amazing cakes. Well worth the expense.

The Museum was a gem and real treat for Marzipan lovers. I love the Orange flavour. Go down stairs to see all the pieces of art done with marzipan

This place has an unique charm, but nor the personnel, nor the cakes can match with the expectations. We had a coffee here and tried a local chocolate-bar, but none of them was anything special. However the place has lovely mood, it feels good just...More

called into this museum in early December 2017 as it sounded interesting. wasnt much to see. just a small shop and a small marzipan painting area. theres an old cafe attached to it, which was busy. overall okay, unless you are into marzipan.

Enjoyed watching three seconds of an artist hand painting marzipan in the corner and another five seconds admiring the figures on display. Enjoyed being told by my private tour guide that the molds used today are even still sometimes more than 100 years old. Enjoyed...More

Café looked ok with marzipan being the main event but we went to see the museum. It is not that exciting and it is pretty small. The marzipan figures on display are impressive.

This is the oldest cafe in Tallinn, you can feel the olden times vibrations! Amazing interior! Even the mirrors are old - from past times! Very nice cakes and wonderful coffee! Prices are reasonable.

Don't bother putting this one on your itinerary. It's just a small room with a few marzipan figurines on display in a Kalev shop. Apparently sometimes there's someone sitting in the corner showing you how they decorate the figurines. That person wasn't there when I...More

This is one of the oldest marzipan shops in Tallinn - started by Georg Stude. You'll find marzipan in all shapes and sizes - from the Estonian flag to hearts to hedgehogs and frogs. Each marzipan is painted carefully by hand by talented artists -...More

A small shop that sells chocolate and marzipan. Marzipan representing the Olympic mascot was available for sale in addition to all interesting forms. A lady at the corner decorates the marzipan to show how it is done. Did not try the sit down service.
