The Estonian War Museum (EWM) was founded in 1919. After almost half-a-century-long occupation the museum was restored in 2001 as a state museum under the administration of the Ministry of Defence. Today, EWM serves as the leading military history research centre and museum, offering an overview of Estonia’s military history and recording the present-day history of the Estonian Defence Forces.
BATTERY – YESTERDAY AND TOMORROW
We kindly ask you to join us for the deliberations upon the future of the BATTERY (Patarei prison in Tallinn). The BATTERY is a unique ensemble of classicist defence architecture, which belongs to the cultural heritage of Europe. At the same time, the BATTERY is a powerful symbol of resistance of the martyrs of the Republic of Estonia and a monument of victims of communist and nazi crime.
