Patarei – International Museum for the Victims of Communism opens it’s doors on 15 May, 2019

One of Tallinn’s most majestic buildings with long, dark history will open again to the public presenting an exhibition “Communism is a Prison”.

Patarei – International Museum for the Victims of Communism opens it’s doors officially on 15 May, 2019. Visitors can once again see the authentic prison interior of this former naval fortress built in 1829. On display, you can see more about communist and Nazi ideology and the crimes of its implementer in different countries.

Patarei is one of the largest completely preserved classical style building ensembles in Estonia and the surrounding area. So it’s worth the visit for that reason only. Patarei is just a short walk away from the Old Town. Nearby is another architectural wonder the Seaplane Harbour.
