The museum is a five minute walk from Freedom Square. It houses a collection of recorded histories of people brutalised by the Nazis and the Soviets. You are given SMARTphones at the entrance and follow a series of pictures around the museum. The SMART phone automatically picks up the picture and provides anecdotes of the people. Many stories are interesting , but there is very little sense of what Estonia in general was like and after a while it became repetitive. The fact we were the only two visible visitors suggests not many people are beating a path to the museum and I left feeling the concept is a good idea, but needs further developed.

Take your time and go there. Use at least two hours to spend there. You will and can understand about the Estonians in two hours more than without the museum in some days. Personal items are touching, personal stories are told, and you understand the history beween 1940 until 2000. Technincally brilliant, uniquie and a "must" when you go to Tallinn I would recommend that to everybody

We spent a good hour and a half wandering around the museum listening to the guided tour on individual headphones. Very moving tour with interactive displays.. There are cloakrooms and lockers for you to store your coats and bags in to save carrying them around. Clean and tidy toilets. Do take the time to visit the museum as there is so much to learn of the Occupation of these resilient people.

We really felt good about visiting this museum. It is small, and will not tax your feet too much. There are plenty of places to sit, lockers for coats and bags, and a clean restroom. The entrance fee was not cheap, but we felt we received more than we paid for. Think of it as an investment in a future of more freedom and less totalitarianism. The stories of the eye witnesses and the experiences of one of the benefactors are all moving, and should never be forgotten. If I were King, museums visits like this would be a requirement to vote. (Note: to date, there have been zero requests for me to be King). This museum is a good break from standard “old stuff” museum displays. Great for kids, especially self-absorbed teenagers, to see. Some good books for purchase, we bought two in English.

Phenomenal compact museum stuffed with information. Came away educated, informed, thoughtful. Will go again on my next visit - there's a huge amount to take in.
