I had a lot of pre-conceptions about Tallinn before visiting, thinking that it would have an over-riding Soviet feel. Quickly these feelings got eradicated speaking to locals, this museum taught me a lot about Estonian History and I definitely got the impression Tallinn feels more like part of Northern Europe, which the city itself has a feel of. It was amazing to learn about the years of occupation by other countries and the heavy Baltic German, Swede, Russian influences over this country. This museum really made me feel for the Estonians, and what they've had to put up with over the centuries and I almost felt for Estonia that it is an independent country free of foreign rulers. I spent a good hour and a half here and it was a good way to finish a trip to this city.
