We're Tourism Management students and we were on a school trip in Tallinn and decided to do our review task about Kalev Marzipan Factory Museum. The location was a little misleading because on the outside it was advertised as a café so we didn't realize that there was the museum inside of the café. Design and decorations were beautiful, the... More

Mazzipans are being produced here like precious artworks. They are so nice and fine that I am not sur whether I would like to eat them. Even if you don't like the candy, you should still come to take a look.

The Marzipan Museum is actually a beautiful store that is holding the secret of the Kalev family, for many years. They have invented the Marzipan, and excelled in decorating it. In the store, you can see photos of the family, shelves with all kinds and shapes of marzipan, and a lady, that brings to life, pieces of marzipan, with her... More

I had no idea Marzipan was invented here in Tallinn! What a fun thing to discover and a delight to experience. We recommend it-definitely stop and and get some!

Although not really a museum as opposed to a 5 minute look round a single room, we stopped to do the marzipan modelling which was great. Costing €4 per person, we each got a ball of marzipan, food colourings, pre made models to inspire us, and a plastic display box to take our creations away with. Good fun for all... More

Yes there is an explanation all things marzipan but primarily it's a tea and coffee shop with lovely cakes and pastries and of course sweet delights. Restaurant menu also available outside. Thanks for the vote if you found this helpful.

We had a short stop on our tour through Tallinn and enjoyed a coffee and some delight pastry and patisseries. I recommend especially the one with marcipan.

this place is heaven! At least for chocolate-lovers. The sales assistants are unusually friendly and always greet you with a smile. The place is small but filled with sweet smell and you just want to eat everything! Yet at the same time the prices are so normal (not overpriced at all) and the selection is big (marzipan hearts with text... More

We stopped here for about 20 minutes on a walking tour of Tallinn. Otto, who has worked there for 57 years gave us a short presentation of what they do and how marzipan in made. We were given samples to eat or take home. We are not big marzipan fans but they also make the most delicious chocolate bars at... More
