Housed in the Great Guild Hall, this newly renovated museum's permanent exhibition, entitled 'Spirit of Survival', covers 11,000 years of Estonia's history with interactive displays and text in Estonian and English (audio-guides available in Russian and English). The building itself, built 1407 - 1410, is significant as the home of Tallinn's union of wealthy merchants and is a sight worth visiting in its own right. As part of the renovations, several formal rooms and cellars have now been opened to the public for the first time. Next to the museum, follow the Börsi Passage where Estonia's history is set in the stone path (when it's not covered in snow), from the pre-history, through the present-day. A temporary exhibition 'Fashion Line. Estonian Ladies' Fashion 1920-1940' is open until May 13. The exhibition looks back at the time when the world’s fashion metropolises had been taken over by art deco, which left its impression on Estonians’ clothing choices as well.
