"Tallinn City Museum" City Museum Tip by mightywease
City Museum, Tallinn: 10 reviews and 26 photos
The Tallinn City Museum (Tallinna Linnamuuseum) traces the development of the city from its earliest origins to Estonia?s independence in 1991.
The exhibits encompass social and political history, trade, influences, occupations, revolution and independence. Interesting aspects include how Toompea and the Old Lower Town were administered separately and the tensions between the two areas. Also the latter part of the exhibition dedicated to life under Soviet rule is rather thought provoking as propaganda and real life are displayed side by side. The building in which the museum dwells, an old merchants house, is also interesting as there are a number of exhibits exploring domestic life in such a house.
The exhibits are well set out with most labelled in Estonian and English and as a whole this interesting museum gives you an insight into and appreciation of the fascinating history of Tallinn.
