Petite museum that shows medieval art. The large "Dance of Death" painting along the back wall is the best of it's kind in the world and is beautifully presented. It is a reminder that we are all mortal and death comes for us all wether we are a King, Pope, or tradesman. Though not a large collection it has some very nice pieces and a side room presents some of this church's and other Estonian churches Treasury items. This is worth the effort to find and visit! Staff was very nice and helpful, small gift shop and restrooms.

Niguliste Church is not one of the art museums where you need hours or even days. But this quite compact museum has an exhibition with some of the most beautiful works of medieval art in all Europe. Estonia might sound quite marginal place, but here we are in very heart of European culture, thanks to Hanseatic league, Teutonic order etc.

Really wonderful old church which is huge inside, and has so many interesting and intricate works of medieval art, including the "Dance of Death". I was lucky to come when they happened to be having a music recital so enjoyed the background music during my visit. I 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 church was part of the self-guided "Tallinn Walk" in the book.
