Attraction details
Reviewed 6 September 2017

Beside that Estonian History Museum we've seen in Peek str. in Old Town of Tallinn, we also visited this museum of same purpose in Pirita region of the estonian capital. The museum is settled in very nice, old, stone palace, with ornated roof, one tower on the flanc of main building and also some interesting Soviet time statues of Lenin and Stalin.
The museum itself, tells the story of the birth, development, occupation and second independence of Estonia in 1991. First independence was in 1918. Inside the Palace, we saw many of objects, documents and stories, which highlight Estonians' striving for freedom and self - determination throughout the 20th century.
Very educative spot, indeed.

Very interesting exhibition. This era of Estonian history is not well known, I assume. At least I did not have a full picture on what really happened and by whom. It is not only the German occupation, but starts from the Soviet invasion & occupation and also ends to Russian soldiers walking again the streets of Tallinn in 1944. Not a big exhibition. Just one floor, but it is well produced. You do need to take the headset and listen.
The Stable is quite easy to find. Several buses go via Pirita tee.
The staff is very friendly and helpful. We definitely liked this visit.

There was not much to see inside the museum, felt like waste of money. But the statues of Lenin and Stalin behind the museum were really great.

Often one think at a historical museum as a boring experience but this is not the case with Estonian history museum. Full of interactive activites, interesting material, facts and about the nation today, videos, games. Much variety in the way things are exposed. Definitely to visit to get an idea of the country!
