Niguliste Museum and viewing platform
Estonia, Tallinn

The museum in the Niguliste Church, which was built in the 13th century, is one of the few museums housed in a sacral building. Enjoy ecclesiastical art in its historical context: here you will find medieval tombstones, unique altars and Tallinn's most famous artwork, a fragment of Bernt Notke's painting the Danse Macabre (the 'Dance of Death'). This more than five-hundred-year-old painting mediates the worldview of the Middle Ages but is still relevant today. The silver items from churches, guilds, and the Brotherhood of Blackheads exhibited in the Silver Chamber are especially valuable.


A glass lift takes visitors to the church tower and skydeck, which offer a 360° view of the Old Town.
