Lots of interesting stuff here, though it seems to be presented in a weird way, an old musket next to a sub-machine gun for instance. Nice amount of historical stuff and it's a lovely building

The collection is nice but not very special. It's the atmosphere of the hall that makes it special. Walking through the museum gives a vey special sense of the long lasting occupations that this small country has endured. The Soviet period is still very touchable....More

This place is well worth knowing about, especially on a rainy day sightseeing in Tallinn. The building itself is historic, being the home of the Great Guild, a guild of merchants. The museum contains a variety of exhibits about Estonian history. On the opposite side...More
