It was a very interesting museum and its connected to the Kiek in de Kök Museum and Bastion Tunnels which takes you thru the history of the use of the tunnels, etc. Overall, worth a visit.

For a small charge we were able to climb the tower and walk along the town walls - a fun experience and worth doing.

We visited the cannon tower museum and paid to include the towers and underground passage. Is well worth the €14 entrance fee. We spend nearly 3hours to walk through the underground passage which is at the start near the main tower entrance, then walk up...More

Visited the towers in the old town. It was okay, had a nice view over the old city. There is a lot of stairs though, if you want to climb to the tower. The ticket price wasn’t bad. In the towers are some exhibition rooms...More

For a small fee it is possible to climb to the tower and enjoy beautiful views over the roofs of Tallinn and walk on the city wall. I really relished and can recommend.

We enjoyed walking here, viewing the fortifications and sitting while soaking in the view. Fun to climb around and a lot of places to peek out at the scenery.

This is not the most interesting activity of them all while in Tallinn, as you won't learn much (no information panels) nor will you see great sights nor have great sightlines... but for 2 Euros, the mere fact you can actually walk on the fortifications...More

Part of the city wall defences. We walked from one end to the other to get the full flavour of the extent of the walls and towers at various locations along it.

Another piece of a viewing of the King’s Garden and the Town Hall. The tower offers some views of the town. It is another element in the pieces in and around Toompea Hill. The castle is also a piece of the area. All these attractions,...More

This tower offers good views and a little cafe. But it’s a tight fit and other than a history of sweets, there isn’t much else. Staff really should have told a herd of rude teenagers on a school visit to quiet down, this spoiled our...More
