Estonian History Museum and its collection

Estonian History Museum

The Estonian Historical Museum (Eesti Ajaloomuuseum) is a museum in Tallinn dedicated to the history of Estonia that is housed in the Great Guild Hall in the Old Town. The collection started as a collection of Johann Burchard, the owner of the Council pharmacy, which he started in 1802. In 1842 the Estländische Literärische Gesellschaft was founded that expanded the collection. In 1940, large parts of the collection were burned because it did not correspond to the ideology of the Soviet Union. The collection includes historically dressed mannequins and recreations of domestic interiors and army uniforms and weapons.
