The Museum of KGB Cells

The Museum of KGB Cells is situated in the "gray house", which in the 1940s-1950s housed the NKVD/KGB. The basement floor with the cells for prisoners is open for visitors. Part of the cells, lock-ups and the corridor in the basement have been restored in their former shape. The remaining former cells house an exposition which gives a good survey of the history of the Estonian Resistance Movement and the crimes of the communist regime. In the display you can find plans drawn by the Soviet authorities for conducting deportation operations, leaflets distributed by the schoolchildren's underground organizations, objects from the GULAG prison camps, as well as a great number of other photos and documents illustrating Estonian near history.

In Estonia the total number of people who fell victims to different repressions from the security organs amounted to approximately 122,000 and more than 30,000 of them lost their life.
