Thank you so much to our guide who gave up his lunch to show us round and tell us about the history of Estonian Jewry. The new synagogue is beautiful and the community is thriving after being wiped out by the nazis. He museum is very interesting. There is also a kosher restaurant.

I had visited the museum during the "Tallinn Night of Museums 2015" event. It is located pretty close to the city center, what made the visit very comfortable. The staff is extremely friendly and polite. That night the visitors were invited to a glass of delicious wine. My visit to the museum was very interesting- I wish this experience to everybody!

A nice place, which seems to be a bit small, but definitely gives you a very good overwiev of the history of the Jewish people in the country. The staff is friendly, helpful, and knowledgable.

This is a very interesting place indeed. The unique exposition sheds light on the generally rather unknown part of the Jewish history in Estonia. I particularly enjoyed the central part on religion. Nice archival materials, well-organised, visually accessible and super informative. The staff is very friendly and truly passionate about what they do, so go ahead and learn as much as you can from them. It is a very nice little place and an absolute must-see for everyone interested in history and Jewish diasporas.
