Tallinn City Museum

We introduce the history of the city from its establishment to this day.
The cellars of the medieval merchant house stores ceramics, porcelain, and metal. The top floors host exhibitions on the history of the city. The rococo style party room introduced the luxury items and portraits of aldermen and wealthy townspeople. The annual exhibition 'One Hundred Years of Daily Life' introduces the century in terms of everyday life and shows how life and the city have changed.
When booked beforehand, we organise tours in Estonian, Russian, English, Finnish, and German.
Tallinn City Museum opened the first virtual exhibition in Estonia on the Google Arts & Culture platform, allowing users to explore the museum.
