Niguliste tänav 3, Kesklinna linnaosa, Tallinn
The museum is closed from 10.01.2022 until autumn 2022 due to reconstruction works.
Niguliste Church, built in the 13th century, is the home of Niguliste Museum. Enjoy ecclesiastical art in its historical context: medieval tombstones, unique altars, and a fragment of Tallinn's most famous work of art from Bernt Notke's painting the Danse Macabre (the 'Dance of Death'). This more than five-hundred-year-old painting mediates the worldview of the Middle Ages but is still relevant today. The silver items from churches, guilds, and the Brotherhood of Blackheads exhibited in the Silver Chamber are especially valuable.
The Niguliste Museum is located on Harjumägi (Harju Gate Hill) near Toompea. The powerful steeple of Niguliste church with its Baroque spire is visible from every direction. The church is a short walk along Harju Street from Town Hall Square and Freedom Square. From Toompea Hill, you can reach Niguliste Church by descending Lühike Jalg street.
