Kiek In De Kok Museum - Review
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
Overall, a very worthwhile time. I purchased the whole tour package and you can really spend several hours taking it all in. When you do the tunnel tour, be sure to start with the group--I arrived and was placed into a group already beginning the tour. Also, Be aware that there is a lot to see underground, but you will move along without stopping long at each place. Take whatever photos you want at each stop. Above ground, climbing the tower is also a great experience. Views at the top are your rewards for all the crazy climbing you do!
Please like if my review is helpful👍 Don't worry about the name. Nobody will do this to you if you go there 🤣 This was a really interesting part of Tallinn's history and should be something on your list of things to do in Tallinn. We took part in a guided tour in English through the tunnels which fully explained the rich history of Tallinn, the reasons for the walls and tunnels, their importance and how they have been used down the centuries. The guided tour includes some video of the horrendous bombing by Russia during the war. It will move you to tears.
Interesting place. Great displays up in the tower. Look out for the random fire escape on the top floor that leads out to a sheer drop....weird! Don't assume that because a door is open and the lights are on and there's a display to look at, that you're allowed.... I did that, then as I was leaving was intercepted by a grumpy teenage assistant telling me I shouldn't have been there. Darn it, totally forgot to pack my telepathic powers! 😎
Great layout. Very interesting. The kids enjoyed it
Really cool tunnels and interesting history. The tour guide was terrible though. I read a lot about the history in advance which was helpful and there was also an introductory video.
