    Town Jail Photography Museum

    The Photography Museum introduces the history of Estonian photography. There are exhibits of rare daguerreotypes, ambrotypes, and ferro-types, as well as a collection of cameras. Alternating photo exhibitions take place in the gallery and project room. The museum is located in a 14th-century town jail and a prison chief's residence built 100 years later.
