The Great Guild Hall is a combination of Estonia history and the story of the Great Guild itself. It is presented in quite a variety of ways. It has exhibits of artifacts, video displays, archeological features of the building, and rooms laid out as they...More

At 9 euros for a family ticket (2 adults plus as many kids as you like) this is good value. It contains the story of Estonia over the many occupations by foreigners and the brief spells of independence. Entitled the spirit of survival, you get...More

Having visited this museum, I'm still not entirely sure what the focus of it was. There's a bit of everything - a short film about the history of Estonia, and another one about its nature and geology; downstairs there's a guild themed exhibition relating to...More
