Town Jail Photography Museum, Tallinn Reviews - Write a Review

  • Basic enough museum. Only go if ypure interested in sering old cameras. I liked the gallery featuring photos of dogs! Staff were the usual grumpy standard. 2 euro entry was fine though. Skip it.

  • I just loved it! Worth a visit ,-)

  • The place is having collection related to the photographic history of Tallinn. Many early photos and some device. I love photography, but frankly speaking, a bit boring place.

  • It was by chance that I stumbled upon this museum, but once inside, it was a treat for anyone, like me, interested in photography and the history of the area.

  • Fotomuuseum Raevanglas on väga hariv ja huvitav. Saab heita pilgu fotograafia ajalukku. Vaatamiseks on välja pandud fotoaparaadid erinevatest ajastutest. Näha saab ka kuulsat spioonikaamerat Minox.
