Housed in a 14th century merchant house, this comprehensive museum provides an excellent introduction to Tallinn’s history from the first settlements right up to the Singing Revolution and 1991 re-independence.
The museum covers all the vital aspects of the city’s past and its development. Various sectors of medieval society are explained using a combination of texts, artefacts, life-sized models and sound effects. High-quality displays on the upper floors are devoted to 20th -century life, its turbulent wars, Soviet occupation, and finally Estonia’s re-independence.
