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.

    A very good Estonian marine museum with advanced multimedia features in different languages. The museum covers both non-military as well as the navy view of Estionian marine history. The "Lembit" submarine is probably the #1 "goodie" in the museum

    A relatively small but very pretty church situated on Toompea Hill right across from the Parliament. No photo allowed inside so just enjoy your visit.

    Yes, I know art is in the eye of the beholder and I'm saying that made our group so uncomfortable with distaste for genitalia stuff that we left the floor to see something else. It was offensive. Rest of the museum was good and we paused for lunch in the cafe.

    I walked around wishing I had booked a guided tour here as I'm certain I missed some terrific things. It's more than just graffiti style art. Everyone there, of all ages, looked like they were enjoying it. Playgrounds for kids, shops, cafes, studios, etc

    An absolutely fabulous museum in the Town hall! Loved every bit of it. There is a lot of information in the information sheets you can find in nearly every room, on the big posters on the walls or in the computers. Lots of stairs to climb up and down too! But if you manage to get down to buy the ticket, then you'll make it around. I learnt a great deal about tapestry in the Middle Ages and its connection to Tallinn. Didn't go up those spiral stairs though, so no idea what's hidden in the attic.

    You should visit it. It's not very far. It's not one of a kind but it's a palace with history behind. If you are there in summer you can even sit under the sun and have a picnic.

    I even did not know tunnels are open. They were longe and deeper than expected. I was surprised that Swedes built such a strong fortification in a such short time.
    During the Soviet time it was used as nuclear war shelter.

    A very beautiful neighbour where you can eat, drink or shop. A former industrial zone well restored full of places to hangout

    The museum covers the main recent times that Estonia has been occupied. Firtly by the Germans in the second world war and then by Russia as part of the USSR. There are a lot of objects that are used to tell the story which is linked to a pretty good audio tour system. There are a lot of personnal recollections which really got you into the feel of what things were like. Interesting and thought provocking.

    A wonderful church, established before 1233 and repeatedly rebuilt. There are more than 100 Coat of Arms, made in memorial to dead people, which are wonderfully colorful and intricately designed. It was fun to hike up to the roof which had fantastic views all around! I was in Tallinn on a 9-hour stopover on a Norwegian Getaway 9-day Baltic Cruise during mid-August 2019. I had a 'Tallinn Card', which covered most sights. 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.

    very nice place. I was able to try some things myself. The plastinated bodies were interesting. There were also interactive things.

    At 12 EUR, it is perhaps a bit expensive, but nevertheless an interesting experience. The tour was guided and took about 50 minutes. Our guide, Pavel, spoke fluent Finnish, but with a thick Russian accent (which actually fit the theme perfectly).

    The guide combined history of the hotel and KGB stories into a nice commentary, with some jokes included, as is customary. We were shown lots of pictures of the hotel in its heyday and at the end, we got to see the KGB surveillance room, left in its 1991 state. Ashtrays and saucers with microphones, etc. In addition, we enjoyed great views of Tallinn from the top floor of the hotel.

    I stayed in Hotel Viru as a kid back in 1988, which of course added to my personal experience. We knew the KGB were listening, but…

    Book and pay in advance on the web, then come to the hotel lobby a few minutes before your tour. There is a desk in the rear part of the lobby where you check in for the tour.

    After a long break because of the pandemic, we had again the opportunity to make a visit to this pleasant opera house. We booked our Tallinn trip just one week before and that determined what the performance would be.

    La Fanciulla del West or Tütarlaps kuldsest läänest (in Estonian) is not our favorite opera but I still made a booking. The tickets are very reasonably priced. With Club One discount (10%), the best seats were just 25,20 each. Although being so late in the booking, we got very good seats.

    The intermission service is very well handled. It is advisable to book it beforehand. So you don't have to queue.

    This was a great find of a museum. It might well be unique. It is a fascinating travel back through time and around the world in the form of the myriad of orders of knighthood. Many of the jewel encrusted exhibits must be priceless.
    A well presented collection. Allow an hour or two for the extensive collection.
