Estonia is a great place to visit and this museum is a top attraction. I especially recommend it to North Americans who may not have as much knowledge about Estonia and the regional history as do many Europeans.
The displays and artifacts are well presented and all have English explanations. Estonia is located on a very strategic piece of land and has had many foreign occupiers over the centuries. Most recent have been the Russians and Germans.
To be fair, I noticed that most of those not liking this museum on Trip Advisor were Russians who claimed the information is biased. I can see how they could feel that way and suggest you read their negative reviews before going. It adds another perspective that is interesting and, to me, made the displays even more interesting.
I found the museum's staff to be helpful and very committed to telling the story. I suggest you ask them about their history if they are not overly busy.
Convenient to public transportation. Close to restaurants. Fairly convenient to center of Old Town but that is a significant uphill walk for those with limited walking abilities.
