A Visit to Tallinn's Photo Museum

If you are someone like me who is passionate about photography then you are sure to find Tallinn's Photo Museum a place of great interest. The museum is centrally located in the heart of Tallinn's Old Town just behind the Town Hall. The entrance fee is a very modest 2€ per person.

The Photo Museum is located at 4/6 Raekoja Street, Tallinn.

The building formerly housed the Town Council's Prison. 

Early Tallinn photographers.

Histories and samples of their studio work.

A brief history of photography in Estonia from 1840 - 1940.

A collection of cameras through the ages.

Extremely fascinating!

A beautiful old camera!

The minox camera was invented in Tallinn in 1935 and is the smallest on display.

Experience an old pavillion style studio setting and learn about some female Estonian photographers. This is a truly delightful museum. A must when you are in Tallinn!
