The Guild Hall houses part of the History Museum with a spooky underground section which may interest youngsters. Its exhibits are well laid out. Entrance tickets reduced for seniors and students. Entrance to be found near the town hall square.

A thoroughly interesting museum that tells the story of Tallinn and Estonia really well. A good mix of modern and more traditional exhibits that held my attention for a couple of hours. Well worth making this part of your visit to this beautiful city.
