DRAGON QUEST AT THE GREAT GUILD HALL
A dragon has lived in the Great Guild Hall for centuries now, hiding on the capitals in the Guild Hall. Now he's also in charge of the museum's dragon quest. Come and find him!

 

In the Old Town of Tallinn, in a 600-year-old Guild Hall, a dragon set in stone has been hiding on the capitals of the columns in the grand hall. Right in front of us and at the same time invisible, he has protected the house for centuries.

Now, Gilbert the History Dragon, nicknamed Guild Gilbert is active in the permanent exhibition at the Estonian History Museum "Spirit of Survival – 11,000 years of Estonian history". 

In the Great Guild Hall you will also find some modern dragons in addition to the medieval ones. If you're attentive enough, you'll find a dragon guarding a treasure trove, a dragon hatching from its egg, a trendy Skype dragon and other great characters.

 

You'll also find dragon-shaped pendants, earrings and reflectors from the museum shop. Come round for a visit!
