Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    We absolutely loved this museum. We got a taxi from our hotel & the museum staff were kind enough to organise a return taxi for us. The museum is housed in a purpose built hangar, which is worth the entrance price alone. We visited oi a cold December day & there were a few people there but it wasn't crowded,. This was beneficial as it meant we were able to explore the submarine exhibit without queuing. There is a great deal to see, coupled with a lovely coffee shop. We thoroughly enjoyed our visit.

    We did not know that on Easter Sunday they had great activities for kids running! This meant that we were able to not just engage the kids in learning about the history, but also have some fun!!!!

    The museum is small but very interesting, having 3 rooms consisting of orders of knighthood from many countries. It was really interesting to see so many of them. In one place. The audioguide was easy to use and very informative. The museum curator was also very friendly and helpful, we had an interesting conversation with him and he gave us free postcards and advice on where else to visit in Talinn. Would reccomend!

    Nice attraction to see how terror was in place to keep people scared and petrified about their life and what might happen to them if they break rules.
    Opening eyes place. Shows real place how KGB was treating human being .
    Informative attraction especially if you are history lover.

    The museum is really good. A lot of interesting information for adults and enough activities for 5-10 years old children.

    Very beautiful views through the tower windows and interesting exhibits in the church museum. Authentic wooden sculptures and paintings takes you to the Middle Ages.

    This museum has something for everyone from toddler upwards. It presents Tallinn's maritime heritage in an interesting and easy to understand way. Spread over several floors each floor has a different theme , with activities

    Good for the price if you're in Old Town. The ground floor had a good history video, which gave a good insight into the period. 1st floor, good history but a bit scattered around, would have been better if it had more coherance. Cellar had a couple of interesting historical things combined with tonnes of random collections. 2nd floor, only handbags. 3rd floor, didn't go, 18+ and others suggest it's not worth it. All in all, a good museum for 2 floors, which is more than enough for the price. Stayed around 90 minutes

    Having previously visited the eerily similar KGB cells in Vilnius, the ones in Tallinn were at the top of my bucket list for my visit. In this day and age especially, but also in general, it is vital that we remain informed of the horrendous crimes of the Soviet regime only mere decades ago. The area of the cells is relatively small in size, but the information provided is excessive and the cells have been kept pretty much as they were. The museum also contains a section dedicated to the current resistance against the russian regime, which was harrowing to see, as it shows that while the world moved on after the fall of the Soviet Union, russia, needless to say, definitely didn't.

    A nice small museum in Tallinn old town. Probably more interesting for local people who have some experience in the puppetry theatre to have a kind of "I remember..." effect as well (but sure I can be wrong about that). This time a very interesting exhibition about Urmas Alender was presented there but again - I believe it is for people who remember this actor and singer.

    Nice museum and interesting exhibition. It's a very small museum and even when having a bigger interest in the art of photography it's a max 20 minutes look around. So you can consider it as a pro or con.

    Not too big but fun museum themed around electricity production mostly, however other things present too. The first floor or rather basement floor is mostly various interactive exhibits to play with light and sound, as well as optical illusions with explanation of an effects given nearby of each of those exhibit. Also small planetarium is here - you have to pay separately, and space themed corner. Second floor dedicated to electricity, also lightning and static electricity demonstrations performed here. With it's vicinity to Old Town it maybe a nice place to take a breath and rest a bit while kids are checking around, it maybe interesting for all but mostly, I think it is for young schoolchildren up to their early teens.

    This was truly a surprise. The museum has it's own entrance, you don't actually walk through the main Bank of Estonia's door. Nice architecture. Thought it was just gonna be a small exhibition, but there are several rooms covering monetary history in general along with Estonian money. Also some interactive features. You can play chess with a computer, press some buttons, open drawers, try some weights used in the past... And it's free entry. So perfect if you want to get out of the rain or just looking for something free and interesting. (You can the rest of Tallinn's main attractions with the Tallinn Card) I think that even your children might find it fun. Spent there about 45 minutes but could have stayed for at least another half an hour.

    We really enjoyed our visit to this hidden gem - the director of the museum and the creator of many of the exhibits showed us around and shared the history of the museum itself and the different dolls. It was a unique experience and one we would definitely recommend to visitors to Tallin
