The museum is exciting! At the medieval Great Guild Hall in Tallinn's old town and at Maarjamäe Palace, hidden along Pirita Road, you can see wonderful, valuable and rare objects from the collections of the Estonian History Museum. As well as rare items we also collect and exhibit everyday objects, which can be found in many homes today, but which will one day become an important part of our cultural heritage.
On the history museum's homepage you can see various different web-based exhibitions and educational programmes, work sheets for independent work and learn about how historical weapons worked with the weapons simulator located in the weapons chamber in the Great Guild Hall. With Digiteek you can find photographs of artefacts, photographs and archive material held in the museum's collections. Keep up with our news and come to the museum – visit exhibitions, lectures, concerts or celebrate your birthday.
Come and discover history!
