Too much for the entrance cost, I entered mainly because of interest in interiors of such houses but I didn't find it was worth it. Good enough to admire the exterior.

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 the history of the building, as well as a historical weapons room and a seemingly random collection of historical artefacts from around the world; then there's a money exhibition, a bit about the reformation and a (very) brief look at the Estonian character. A clearer timeline and narrative would've been nice.

I'm still not entirely sure if it was worth a visit or not. To be fair, the look of the museum was very modern and well curated, but I thought it would be a comprehensive look at the history of Estonia and its people - and I don't think it was that.

Presentation is good using multimedia in an inventive way.
Located in a historical building.
Unfortunately the actual contents of the exhibits are not all that interesting.
Nice small weapons collection.

This Museum of natural history is located in the Old Town just a short walk from the Town Hall Square.
This lovely museum is in a beautiful building with amazing exhibitions.
A very informative museum of history.

We first walked past the museum one evening when it was closed and noticed the impressive doors and door knockers - the brass on the lions nose on the left one is shiny - apparently rubbing it brings luck!!! We returned the next day during opening hours and spent about an hour and a half here - very interesting displays documenting Estonian history. Some young people were rehearsing for an evening concert whilst we were there and it sounded really lovely in the grand hall. We were told we could stay for the evening concert but unfortunately had other plans.

Thank RobertJE
