Kiek in de Kök & Bastion Tunnels

21. April 2010

The newly opened Kiek in de Kök and Bastion Tunnels with its new exposition “Time travel. Tallinn 1219-2219” offers new knowledge, great entertainment and fresh experience.

The renovated Kiek in de Kök’s first two floors host temporary exhibitions. The third floors exhibition “Secure city” gives an overview of Tallinn’s fortresses through the centuries focusing on crime and punishment in the Old Tallinn.

The fourth floor’s exhibition “Tallinn at war” tells the story of how wars, famine and pestilence have beset the city over the centuries. On the fifth floor’s unique weapon chamber, an interested crowd can investigate an exposition of weapons as well as try their hand on a shooting stimulator. On the sixth floor, in the cafe, you can enjoy unique views over Toompea, the lower town and the port.

The Bastion tunnels 10m below the ground will take the visitor back to the future, showing how people imagined the future would turn out in the past.
