Tallinn City Museum, Tallinn Reviews
We introduce the history of the city from its establishment to this day. The cellars of the medieval merchant house stores ceramics, porcelain, and metal. The top floors host exhibitions on the history of the city. The rococo style party room introduced the luxury items and portraits of aldermen and wealthy townspeople. The annual exhibition 'One Hundred Years of Daily Life' introduces the century in terms of everyday life and shows how life and the city have changed. When booked beforehand, we organise tours in Estonian, Russian, English, Finnish, and German. Tallinn City Museum opened the first virtual exhibition in Estonia on the Google Arts & Culture platform, allowing users to explore the museum.
In this museum you can learn a lot of things for Tallinn and Estonian history. I particularly liked the medieval part. The information are very interesting and the visitor can be very engaged through the whole instalation (sound, lighting and displays). Definately recommended if you have spare time in the city
A lot of interesting displays. Information in English and Estonian
Truly an exceptional museum for its size and a great value for the entrance fee. Well organized by time period and theme, exhibiting fascinating artifacts whose history and significance spans centuries. A great wealth of information related to Estonia's constant struggle for independence throughout modern history. Happy centenary, Estonia!
Excellent, old school museum for learning about the history of the city - no augmented reality app-based learning here. Lots of things to look at and read about, and no worse for it. The modern history bit ends slightly abruptly! Good value for a 90 minute bit of education.
