Tallinn City Museum

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

First in Estonia, Tallinn City Museum opened a virtual exhibition on the Google Arts & Culture platform, allowing to explore the museum and its exhibits from anywhere in the world.
