  • Poignant lesson in Eastern European history.

    Being a native born American, I had only a vague knowledge of Estonia and it's checkered past. Visiting the museum made me appreciate the freedoms I have always taken for granted. The museum's focus...

  • Well worth a visit

    Very interesting to see how Tallinn fared during the years of the Soviet Union, and heartening to see very clearly that it retained its own independence and character despite the years of oppression.

  • A look into secrets of the Cold War

    If history interests you, take this tour. It is fun to see the hotel floor that "did not exist" and learn about the ways that the Soviets spied on the visitors to this Estonian hotel.
