Permanent display of church bells

On the first floor of the medieval church tower, accessible by medieval stairs and a modern glass lift, visitors can explore a display of historical church bells. Housed in a room with a ceiling height of 16 metres, the exhibition features an array of church bells from the medieval to the modern period, several of which were cast in a foundry once located in Rüütli Street, next to the church. The exhibition includes a section on the history of the tower.
