An attractive little museum setting out to answer the question of what it means to be Estonian with a variety of engaging and interactive displays in Estonian and English. Clearly there's a strong political line about nationhood coming through here and the museum is perhaps...More

This was the best of the museums we saw on our first day using the Tallinn Card, and we visited four of them. It had a fun, light-hearted approach to Estonian history, which made a nice change from some of the stuffier museums in the...More
