Estonian History Museum — Great Guild Hall

The mediaeval Great Guild Hall has always played an important role in the life of the city. The permanent exhibition at the History Museum "SPIRIT OF SURVIVAL. 11,000 years of Estonian History" (opened in 2011) helps to understand the singularity of the people who have lived in Estonia and introduces historical events that have affected them the most. The exhibition discloses the story of Estonian past through rooms with different topics, such as the Gun Room that tells about wars, the exhibition "Power of the Elite" that talks about the Great Guild and mediaeval trade. You can also see different currencies and take part in historical events in the interactive time capsule.

    Great Historical Museum

    I loved this museum. You learned a lot about the medieval times and the history of Tallinn. The building is an original guild hall and houses lots of history in itself.

    Interesting

    This museum tells the story, history of Tallinn and Estonia. Lots of artifacts are on display as well. It is a beautiful 15 century building located in Old Town. Worth a visit but not as must visit.
