Tallinn City Museum

Tallinn City Museum vividly introduces city’s history from the 13th century until the present.
The museum is located in a medieval merchant dwelling, and through different sounds, pictures, figures and texts, you will get an idea of how people lived in Tallinn at different periods of time. Complete video and slide programs introduce revolutionary events in Tallinn in the 20th century. In the basement of the main building, you find a ceramics depository. 
When booked beforehand, we organise tours for groups of up to 25 people in Estonian, Russian, English, Finnish, Greek and German.

Good to know: the museum also offers tours of the Old Town of Tallinn in Estonian and other languages.
