Tallinn Museum of Orders of Knighthood
#1 of 96 Museums in Tallinn
Just off the town square lies one of the best military museums stacked full of the rarest and most amazing orders and decorations (medals) one could see the range is impressive as is the shear beauty of them.
Even gave us advice on which similar museums to visit in other countries on our tour.
Estonian Health Care Museum
#2 of 96 Museums in Tallinn
As an art historian I tend to visit mainly art museums/ galleries but I was pleasantly surprised with a visit to ETM.
With so much medieval history to absorb in the plethora of Old Town Museums you may well feel the need for a break.

Eesti Vabaohumuuseum
#4 of 96 Museums in Tallinn
This is surely one of the most unusual and beautiful museums I've ever visited, and I've visited a lot of museums all over the world.
This is one of the very best Open Air Museums we have seen (we have visited the ones in Oslo, Helsinki and Stockholm).
Kumu Art Museum
#5 of 96 Museums in Tallinn
... hours just wandering about, a must if you are in Tallinn, about a twenty minute walk from the old town and whilst you are there explore the park, one of the best contemporary museums I have visited, a great find.
I rarely take time to visit art museums when traveling as there are so many you could visit.

Telliskivi Loomelinnak
#6 of 96 Museums in Tallinn
Having visited the Seaplane Harbour & Museum, which in itself is worthy of an excellent rating, we decided to walk back to the Old Town via Kalamaja and stumbled upon this hidden gem by the railway station.
And I must say this museum is truly a work of art.

It was in the small museums that we were able to get away from the crowds and find gems that really reflect the history.
Had to select just 3 museums....so much choice.
Kiek in de Kok and Bastion Passages Museum
#10 of 96 Museums in Tallinn
We found it to be one of the most interesting museums and tours in the Baltic States that we visited.
The tour bastion passages took 1,5h - without museums.
Great Guild Hall
#11 of 96 Museums in Tallinn
There are very many museums in Tallinn and this one offers just the right amount of background to Tallinn's history.
There are several excellent small museums in Tallinn Old Town and unless you are visiting for a week or more it is impossible to do them all justice.

Estonian Maritime Museum
#12 of 96 Museums in Tallinn
Some museums write too much but this was perfect!
Displays and information are well done, with fascinating boats, ice-boats, the seaplane and actual submarine in the Seaplane Museum as well as various boats moored alongside that can be explored too.

Vabamu Museum of Occupations and Freedom
#14 of 96 Museums in Tallinn
This small museum is something that you have to visit, especially if you want to compare it to simillar museum in Riga and the museums from the same period in Russia.
Estonia has an incredible history and the Estonian Museum of Occupations is worth visiting to gain a deeper understanding of everything the country has been through as it worked towards independence.

This tour is probably listed under museums which can be defined as a building in which objects of historical, scientific, artistic, or cultural interest are stored and exhibited.
That's the way I like visiting museums.

Museum of Estonian Architecture

They have only recently begun to combine historic preservation with modern architecture, but Rotermann City (the area next to the Museum) shows their success.
