Attractions & museums

    Old Dominican convent and Claustrum gallery

    Visit the well-preserved premises, established already in 1246.

    Walking on the streets of Tallinn, one does not see this building at all. After a deep gateway, you step into a courtyard that is worth visiting itself. From here you can enter the building where there are different rooms monks were living and studying. Inside, there are also lots of medieval carved stones on display. Besides, in some rooms, there are contemporary art exhibitions, changing bimonthly. 

    Beyond the ordinary opening hours, private events as well as guided tours can be ordered.

      This is petite but beautifully preserved. Accessed via an ancient archway into the courtyard. The steps to the museum are old and uneven.

    • It was OK

      While walking around through Tallinn, we stopped by the Monastery. The lady at the desk was very friendly, but it was not worth the money to go inside. We did sit in the courtyard for a few minutes... Read more comments
