Kgb Museum - Review

Taking you to the 1970’s during the Soviet Union where the Soviet citizens lived with chaste friendships and everyone being watched by the party. The environment juxtaposed to the outside world that was more liberal.

The museum uses the setting of ‘Hotel Viru’ and was heavily under surveillance where guest and their conversation was tracked. No accidents and incidents above the rule were allowed. The tour of the museum really gets you in the skin of the Soviet rule and offers a peak into the Soviet world.

KGB Museum, Tallinn Reviews

  • A little disappointed. Unique and that’s the only reason I’ve given it 4stars but a few things let it down. They have been greedy (as is often the case) and group sizes on the tour really impact on the quality. The rooms are too small for the numbers. Tour guide was great and very informative but I would have liked time to actually read the boards and look at the photos/artifacts/rooms during the tour. This was simply not possible with so many people crowded into each area. Could do with a bit more information as it’s quite unique looking specifically at the hotel and it’s part in the era. I’d have liked a longer tour (it was just under an hour including time spent looking at the view).

  • Very informative and well explained. This was a great tour. Special thanks to our guide for going beyond normal stuff and explaining a lot more. She was very receptive to all the questions asked. There are some cool view points from the top of 23rd floor.

  • It's a great place to visit if you're into that kind of stuff. The guide was awesome as her delivery of the info was quirky and suited the era.

  • Enjoyable cold war memorabilia, located mostly on the well-hidden top floor. Magnificent view over lovely Tallinn.

  • It's not a real museum but rather an opportunity to enter the hidden floor in the virtu hotel. This special 23rd floor was used to listen to what foreigners where speaking about. If you're into the soviet era and you like to see and touch how the world looked like at that time you should try this tour. As a fan I really enjoyed it. If you don't care about that era I think you will be bored.
