REQUEST INFORMATION View on map

Kiek in de Kök Fortification Museum forms a museum complex over 500 metres long that includes four towers: Kiek in de Kök, Maiden's Tower, Tallitorn Tower, and the Gate Tower of the Short Leg (Lühikese jala väravatorn). The fortification museum also includes mysterious underground bastion passages, which house the Carved Stone Museum.
The Kiek in de Kök exhibition provides an overview of the warfare of the past.
The bastion passages were built in the 17th–18th centuries. The exposition of the bastion passages introduces the history of the defensive structures and the most important military events.
The bastion passages and the Carved Stone Museum can be explored with an audio guide, which we ask you to download to your phone beforehand.
