Kiek in de Kök Museum and Bastion Tunnels
The museum, located in the cannon tower and bastion passages, introduces the genesis of Tallinn, its development, as well as the most important war events from the 13th to the 18th century.
This massive, 38m-high cannon tower houses an extensive museum of the town's fortifications, weapons and medieval-era life.
The mysterious passages in Tallinn’s earthwork fortifications were built along with the bastions in the 17th and 18th centuries to conceal the movement of soldiers, ammunition, and other equipment from the enemy. They were also used to monitor the enemy’s underground activities of planting mines.
