St. Nicholas Church (Estonian: Niguliste kirik, German: Nikolaikirche) is a medieval former church in Tallinn, Estonia. It was dedicated to Saint Nicholas, the patron of the fishermen and sailors. Originally built in the 13th century, it was partially destroyed in the Soviet bombing of Tallinn in World War II. It has since been restored and today houses the Niguliste Museum, a branch of the Art Museum of Estonia, focusing mainly on ecclesiastical art from the Middle Ages onward. The former church is also used as a concert hall.

That's cool. It is located in the Old Town of Tallinn. Go up the stairs and you'll see the old city. There are small shops for tourists.
A real surprise! Nice architecture and temporary collection. The painting displayed at the altar comes with detailed explanation on touch screens. The Dance of Death is definitely a must-see!
Famous for its organ (go hear it on a weekend, you won't regret), and for the "Dance macabre" painting.
Grand, serene, lots to see. Well worth the entrance fee.
Museum and concert hall (owner: Estonia state). Not a church anymore.
This 13th century church has undergone serious renovation after being nearly destroyed during WWII. Beautiful, airy and spacious, it is now used as a concert hall and art museum. Apart from the permanent exhibition there are also always interesting temporary exhibitions running.

the church itself is beautiful and it was interesting to see the historical chalices, medals and paintings.
Best place to listen for the organ music. The way the seats arranged allows to fully enjoy the acoustic of the place. You literally feel the sound of it with your body. A bit costy entrance, but you get to see the silver chamber exposition and famous "Totetanz"(death dance) fragment. It is authors miniature copy painting which is THE MUST SEE if you are in Tallinn.
Beautiful!!! Very interesting well organized exposition , smart lighting, one of the highlights of the city
Beautiful church and quite scenic from the castle walls.
