About Kiek In De Kok Museum, Tallinn
Housed in a cannon tower, the Kiek in de Kok and Bastion Passages Museum offer a collection of the history of fortification in the city along with its defense strategies, weapons and stories of crimes and punishment.
A walk in the hidden tunnels of the Bastion Passages that take you below the Toompea hill, is literally a walk in history. The cannons placed at the tower memorial is a must-see while a tour of the place is perfect if you truly want an immersive experience. The top floor has a cafe that offers a quick bite with the view of the city.

Kiek In De Kok Museum, Tallinn Reviews
🐤 Tower of Kik-in-de-Kök. Средневековая артиллерийская башня. Раньше она имела площадку наверху, в отверстия были выставлены пушки, а внизу хранится порох. За время нее жизни она несколько раз подвергалась частичному разрушению. В настоящее время ее отреставрировали и вернули к первозданному облику. Внутри сейчас находится музей и фотогалерея, которые стоит посетить незаконному зрителю. 🗨️ The artillery tower (Kiek in de Kök) was It was built in 1475, 38 meters high and 4 meters thick with walls. One of the most powerful Tallinn defensive structures, it had five vaulted floors and an open platform at the top. The bottom floor served to store gunpowder, on the other were guns. During its existence, the tower managed to repel more than one attack on Tallinn. The most serious damage was done to her during the Livonian War, when in 1577 the troops of Ivan the Terrible besieged Tallinn. Now there is a museum and a photo gallery. #leslastravel🐤
Skip it in favour of other places of interest. The "museum" in the tunnel is a propaganda experience focusing on irrelevant moments. Too cold even in the summer especially for the propaganda video you have to look at while underground (showing us the supposedly burnt by Soviets synagogue whereas there were already no more Jews after Nazis there!). Very misleading.
Historical place. Great views. Interesting exposition, must be very attractive for children. Friendly and erudite guide.
Nice museum in old tower. Small enough not to bore anyone! Excellent views to Tallinn town upstairs. Tunnel tour is also highly recommented!
Enjoyed the tour through the tunnels that run along the bastions. Interesting to learn more about the history of them and how they've been used in different eras. The stairs to the top of the tower are a bit narrow but it's quite a nice view once you get to the top.
