KGB Museum, Tallinn Reviews - Write a Review

  • Guide was really good and told us lots of little bits of information. However don't expect the usual "museum" feel. This is made up of two rooms, one of which is in a preserved state, the other made with props. If I were there marketing team I'd rename it as the preserved KGB room, I love the way they denied that the 23rd floor existed. Worth a visit, a little expensive for what you get and I'd Remarketing it slightly. But interesting.

  • The tour guide was funny, engaging, and knowledgeable - easily one of the best presenters in my experience at similar venues. While the museum is rather "small" - two rooms on the top floor, with viewing platforms - the information was dense, the memorabilia and artifacts were interesting, and overall I left feeling as though I had a solid glimpse of the activities of the hotel and KGB within the context of recent history. I certainly would recommend this to anyone with a passing interest in learning about soviet occupation and KGB affairs in Tallinn.

  • Yes it's small, and yes most of the information is in the talk. However it's fascinating. Two small rooms of old memorabilia from Soviet spying era. I really enjoyed it

  • Interesting and informative tour. However, a bit to crowded and overprice for what you get.

  • The museum is overrated. Expensive. Didn't learn anything new. It was the worse museum in Tallin.
