When I first visited this museum, I had a fascinating time with posters and other memorabilia from the Soviet era in Estonian. I also enjoyed the Lammasmägi Kunda culture finds, from a nearby archeological site, which at 8000–5000 BC (see Wikipedia) were once thought to be the oldest in Estonia. The next time I visited, all this had disappeared and replaced with exhibits so boring I cannot remember them. The building has now been handed over to the federal government for the Estonian Police Museum. I believe that this was done as a cost-saving measure for those behind the previous excellent museum.

During my recent visit to the Police Museum, I missed out on what probably was the highlight, ten dastardly crimes in Estonia, because the black curtain and the police tape looked too convincingly like a "please do not enter, not a museum exhibit" sign.

Located in an old small house, this museum gives an excellent look at what life in Rakvere was like in the 19th and early 20th century. Having visited numerous museums of this type around the World, I saw things here that I had never seen. If you are nearby, this museum is well worth a visit.

We were more interested in the garden and the sculptures but to be fair, there weren't that many sculptures and a view looked a little old and neglected. The garden was nice but not very special. We enjoyed our walk and looked around everywhere but spent there less than an hour.
