Estonian History Museum

Estonian History Museum (Pikk 17, Kesklinna linnaosa, Tallinn) – this museum, which covers the history of the Estonian people, was previously named the History Museum of the Estonian SSR (under Soviet rule, severely limiting exhibition of items relevant to Estonian independence). When the Soviet empire collapsed and Estonia became a free republic, many important exhibitions that introduced the contemporary history of Estonia were held in the late 1980s and early 1990s: “Tricolour Estonia” at the Great Guild Hall (1989) and “Stalinism in Estonia” at Maarjamäe Palace (1990). Admission: €4 (adult), €2 (seniors), €6 (family).
