About
The museum managed by the Hiiumaa Military History Society is located in Tahkuna. The crown jewel of the exposition is the BB-316 cannon barrel from the Tahkuna Kukeraba battery. The museum exposition covers Hiiumaa’s coastal defence structures, armaments, and ammunition. In a barracks atmosphere, visitors can examine surveillance and communications equipment. There is a reconstruction of a border strip in the yard.The armament collection is still modest. In the diesel house, there is a generator ready to start up. Simple fuel drums also comprise a collection: a riveted drum from the beginning of the last century, from the German Wehrmacht and Finnish Lentojoukut, as well as a Russian armament oil drum.

There were a lot of military things in the museum. It was quite intetesting. However, we did not learn much and some things were not real (etc. Underground potatoe storage was represented as hideout from atomic weapon).

This museum has the best exposition of the military equipment that was used during the soviet time in the country. Very interesting collection that provide quite good overview of the clothes and shoes, propaganda and soviet military literature, maps and ofcourse weapons.

Any thoughts of institutions like the Imperial War Museum in London - forget! This is local. The best display is inside the small museum building which shows the military history of the locality from Peter the Great's 'northern' fortress through to the Red army being based there.

visited with our friends and being interested in the Cold war thought this place might be of interest.
It proved to be a great place to visit much of the information is in Estonian and the maps etc in Russian but it was an excellent visit with lots of things to do and see the kids loved it they were able to get into the exhibits such as armoured vehicles and trucks they were able to try on gasmasks and hold guns which they found very exciting.

A good afternoon out

Military things from USSR
Jul 2013 • Couples
Small nice museum in the middle of woods. It was not easy to find, because there where only one sign at the last corner. It is worth visiting, if you are interesting military and border guards of late USSR. Place is former radar base. Exhibition includes vehicles, learning material, uniforms and lots of other things. Mostly outdoors.
Entrance 2€/person.
