However the price is quite expensive, I do not regret visit there. Museum have 5 floors, on each one is different period. If you know a bit of history, you can have good examples for your story. Taking children with you it is great to tell the story about knights, soldiers, kings, reformation.... There is also a room for meeting and cafe on the top with cheap coffee.
What surprised me were talking pictures of Ivan the Terrible and Gustav Waza. Very impressing.
Only one disappointment was the view from the cafe windows and XXI century. It could be better there.
We spent more than 2 hours and it was worth to stay there and praiseworthy.

Before this museum I saw much better museums in Estonia, so the price is probably too high. Idea of museum is interesting - different age for each floor. A lot of buttons, which shows videos or makes decorations talk doesn't work anymore. There is some interesting decorations and you traveling to different floors by time machine - elevator decorated with computer parts.
The children were happy that they could touch everything. I really saw better museums but the idea is very interesting!
