Geeft een aardig beeld van de geschiedenis van Tallinn. Personeel is enthousiast.

Do not regret the visit but if it does not fit in your schedule no lack.
There are some very interesting relics and materials. I would plan on spending 2 hours here to read and see all of the info. It's not a very big exhibit but there are many things inside. 100 years worth of history is waiting...
