Tallinn Card, Tallinn
If you will be in Tallinn for 24 hours or longer and wish to see as much as possible while there, consider a Tallinn Card. The card is available at Tourist Information Centers, but also at the airport, hotels, travel agencies, etc.
The card can be purchased for periods of 6 hrs. up to 72 hrs for a very reasonable price (check the website for current prices). In 2005, the price for a 24 hour card was only 16 Euros---the card covers admission to approximately 40 museums and sights about town, including the Tallinn Zoo, the Estonian Open Air Museum, a 2 1/2 sightseeing tour, the Kadriorg Palace with art museum, Tallinn City Museum, etc., etc.,. If you like museums, this card might be a good value for you.
However, we felt that we were able to see as much as we wanted without purchasing this card.
NOTE: Many museums are closed on Mondays and Tuesdays according to Tallinn Card's own website.
Adults: 24 HOURS - 48 HOURS - 72 HOURS

The Tallinn card goes almost everywhere in Tallinn.
It's a credit card style card thats sold at most hotels airport and the tourist information. The card gives free admission to several of the museums and free public transport.
Prices vary according to the period the card is issued for. The 6 hour card has some limitations, and costs 130 EEK. The 72 hour card costs 450 EEK. Along with the card you get an exelent guidebook, "Tallinn In Your Pocket", a map and a newspaper. If you're serious about touristing you'll get this card, even if you're just seeing a few museums.
I would advise buying this if you intend to visit a lot of places during your stay. We each bought a 72h Tallinn Card at the Lennujaama airport from Estravel Airport office. You can also buy them from Estair Airport, Kaleva Travel Airport, Wris & GoTravel Cassandra at the airport.
Full details of the Tallinn Card are available on www.tourism.tallinn.ee. A great site by the way, which I used a lot to plan my trip.
You receive a 100 page booklet, which details all the savings to be made i.e. free unlimited city transport, free sightseeing tours & free entrance to nightclubs. They cost 450 EEK each and we easily made a saving by purchasing them. Also it was easier to flash the card than shout in English to make them understand (only joking- its not our fault that English schooling is so bad). You can keep the booklet and it acts as a little souvenir for all the places you visited as well.
Tallinn Card is a simple, cost-effective way to explore Tallinn on your own,
choosing the sights that interest you most.
Accepted in nearly 100 locations, like free travel on most public transport, including the sightseeing tour bus. Free entrance into the Tv Tower and most popular nightclubs.
You can also get this card at the Tourist information centre.
