Published on : Thursday, February 14, 2013

On February 19 the Estonian History Museum celebrates its 089th birthday with free entrance to all visitors to the Great Guild Hall.

Estonian History Museum  in Old Town presents Estonia’s history from prehistoric times’ right up to the end of the 20th century. Films and interactive displays show how people here lived, fought and survived over the last 11 000 years. The museum is housed in the 15th century house, itself a spectacular relic of Tallinn’s past. It is no surprise that this hulking, gabled hall with its gigantic porch and lion’s head door knockers belonged to the Great Guild. Members of the guild, who had to be married German merchants, controlled the Town Council.

The little passage way Börsi käik exhibit “Road of History” highlights the most important years in Estonian history.
