Vabamu Museum of Occupations & Freedom

This modern museum is dedicated to the period when Estonia was occupied briefly by the Germans, then for decades by the USSR. Audio-visual displays, photos and sound recordings highlight the events of the 1940–91 era, repression and popular resistance, as well as showing how ordinary people coped with the day-to-day realities of this difficult period.

Do & See

Tallinn is a highly compact city, most of which can easily be explored on foot without the need for taxis or buses. Most of the best opportunities for sightseeing, cultural events, dining, shopping, and nightlife are conveniently massed in the city centre. Whatever your agenda, whichever of the Tallinn's you need — the romantic, Medieval Tallinn or the trendy, high-tech one — the doors are open. Just take your pick and head on in! The Tallinn Card gives you free entry to 40 museums and other interesting attractions, one free sightseeing tour of your choice, free use of public transport and a variety of entertainment options.
