Marvel at the medieval architecture and explore one of Tallinn's important historic sites at Great Guild Hall. A prime example of Gothic style, the building dates back to the early 15th century--it served as the center of the city's guild of merchants and artisans. Today, the hall is fully restored and houses the Estonian History Museum. The permanent exhibit showcases the city's and country's history as well as the cultural heritage of the Estonian people. You can stroll through the chambers once frequented by Tallinn's wealthy traders, see historical artifacts, take part in many interactive educational activities, or shop for souvenirs. The admission fee includes an audio guide, and you can make a reservation ahead of time if you want a guided tour.

Great Guild Hall Reviews
Interesting to see the old Guild hall , mainly a museum now but full of interesting stuff. Good place to visit more »
タリン旧市街の目ぬき通りPIKK通りの中心にあり。わかり易いです。中世の職人組合ギルドの会館として使われていた建物を多様な展示物と映像でエストニアの歴史をわかり易く説明しています。建物自体は入り口にも増して奥が深く驚きました。 more »It is located in the center of the PIKK Street in Tallinn Old Town. Understandable is. It wakari易ku the history of the Estonia with a variety of exhibits and images, which were used as the Guild Hall of the Medieval Craftsman Association. The building itself was more than the entrance and I was surprised at the depth.
If you're a history buff, or enjoy collections of old historical items, weapons, coins as well as enjoy reading about and viewing historical exhibitions, then you should pay a visit to this museum. The museum is not too big in size, but it has three floors, impressive collections and a lot of interesting information (also in English) about the old times and how people used to live. It also has a lot of information about the great guilds and their part in the community during the old days. Definitely worth a visit for anyone that's interested in history!
Very good and modern museum of history. Good place to go with kids
