General information on the Museum
The Museum of Occupations provides an overview of Estonian society during three periods of occupation: the first Soviet occupation 1940–1941, the German occupation from 1941–1944, and the second Soviet occupation 1944–1991. The objective of the museum is to show how Estonian society – repressed as it was – managed to survive and how it rose to the occasion of restoring statehood at the first opportunity that presented itself.
