The lower levels of the museum, which used to be a merchant’s house, start with Tallinn’s trading history, and as you work your way up the floors, you learn about Tallinn’s rich history and independence struggles with the Germany, Sweden, and of course, the former Soviet Union. The displays are impressive and eye-catching, and some are interactive. There was also a thoughtful (but possibly temporary) top floor exhibit about Islam and Tallinn’s Muslim community and connections with the Muslim world.
It’s definitely worth spending an hour or two here if you want a good history lesson. It gives great insight into Tallinn and the development of the Baltic trading industry in general.
