When we first came in we were a bit confused about the entrance but when we found ourselves in, the overall experience started to get better and better.

The exhibition was really good especially for young people because there is so many things to learn about money by doing it yourself. For example a coin puzzle, movies, touchable screens holograms and magnifying glasses to see coins better.

We were experiencing different kind of customer service: a security man who was angry and asked what we are doing when we were looking for someone from the staff. Secondly we talk to money exchange shop-lady who couldn't answer our questions because she didn't know the answers.

Last we talk to the museum manager who came to us because shop lady called her. The manager was very kind and happy because we were interested about their products and the Estonian bank system.

I had noticed this gorgeous building before and thanks to
TA photos I recognized this attraction and with excellent opening hours it was my obvious choice for this weekend's trip.

The facade gives you only a hint what to expect. Never did I imagine such a gorgeous interior possible right in middle of the town. No entrance fee, closed on Sundays and Mondays and (some) bank holidays.

The entrance is the Corner tower and its spiral staircase and stained glass windows are absolutely beautiful. Windows were prepared in Riga 1904 by Ernst Tode's workshop. Downstairs there is also a wooden Art Nouveau bench. The building is over 100 years old.

On top of the staircase you can see the beautiful ceiling with a jugend luminaire complements the ensemble. Inside are the Noblemen's hall and Peasants' Hall as well the Museum Shop where you can actually change Estonian kroons for euros.
There are more beautiful lamps and decor details inside. Coins, paper money, wax figures etc. complete the exhibition.

Definitely worth a visit. See yourselves.

The building itself is worth visiting even if you don't enjoy the museum. There's a lot of interactive activities and displays and everything is in English. The vault shouldn't be missed and is super creepy -- as are some of the wax statues. A must see and free!

My friend and I stumbled upon this museum when our cruise ship docked in Tallinn for the day. The museum is free and we thoroughly enjoyed going in the old bank vaults (including auditory reenactment of a man being boiled as punishment for counterfeiting!) and learning about Estonian intellectuals featured on banknotes. There is free candy and many activites for children which my college age friend and I found entertaining.
