The Tallinn old city hall has some nice works of art inside, information about the city and building history. Most of the spaces in the building are empty, and there isn't so much to read about - after taking pictures you'll finish the tour in less than an hour.

Rick Steves "Scandinavian & Northern European Cruise Ports" Guidebook was a great help and this sight was part of the self-guided "Tallinn Walk" in the book.…

Gorgeous and imposing building, the square outside is also huge and provides a break from the tiny streets across old town. The hidden gem here is the taverna underneath!
