Great value for money - if you’re short of time or money don’t bother with the bastion passages as quite a bit of it is a stone museum which isn’t exactly exciting. Top tip is leave for lunch as the cafe in the museum is over priced and lacking in atmosphere and then go back in afterwards- the White Monk just off of the Danish King’s garden has a lovely terrace for lunch instead.

Basically 2 museums in 1: the underground passage (can be done via a - recommended - guided tour; check the museum website for the schedule), and the 4 towers (mini museums with lovely views over the city, and temporary exhibitions in the last tower). You can visit each part separately or buy the combined ticket.

Combination of these two museums give you a good insight of the history of this town from early time before Talliinn until very recent times. Towers can be demanding for people with disabilities in walking. Also the temporary exhibitions are interesting, this time for example on Estonian occultism. Take enough time, there is so much to see.

It was so much fun hiking up the tower and then wandering down through the lower passages! It took awhile so it was excellent exercise too, and I was a bit worn out at the end of the nearly two hours I spent here. They did a great job with the interesting and informational displays. This was one of the best highlights while in Tallinn so would definitely recommend it! I had a 24-hour Tallinn Pass and was in Tallinn on a 9-hour stopover on a Norwegian Getaway 9-day Baltic Cruise in August 2019. Rick Steves "Scandinavian & Northern European Cruise Ports" Guidebook was a great help and this sight was part of the self-guided "Tallinn Walk" in the book.

Although they have historical significance I found the bastion passages rather boring. Much more interesting was the musuem and the walkways between the 3 towers. This was fun to explore and there were some great views to be seen. There were some good displays in the towers. This was a good way to get out of the rain, but not a "must".
