Soviet style museums and tours

We're in Tallin for a weekend at the end of October and according to the websites, the KGB museum and the old prison tours end at the end of September. Are there any others that will still be open that are recommended?

The Museum of the Occupation is worth a look, and you can get a sense of the grim past by visiting the Soviet-era statues (Stalin, Lenin and company) dumped at the rear of the Estonia History Museum in the Maarjamäe Palace on the road to Pirita.

Hello Violator,

you could contact Tallinn traveller tours and ask if they can organize a tour at the KGB-museum and the old prison for you.

Thanks for the tips, maybe i'll contact the hotel where the KGB museum is and see what they say. First stop will be the Depeche Mode bar before all that!

If you are staying at the Viru hotel, they have tours around the building to show all the spy stuff that the KGB had installed in the hotel to be able to keep an eye on their guests.

In Radisson Blu they have also a company called Travelease and you can go and ask them about Soviet tours because they have at least two or three Tours about that will show you Soviet Estonia
