It is a wonderful art museum in the very centre of Tallinn with a nice collection of impressionistic art. The place also offers workshops - you can come in and draw there! How cool is that! There's also kids drawing classes and it us just a very nice place overall.

I had never heard of Adamson-Eric who it turns out was Estonia's premier artist but the displays of his work across a number of mediums were excellent and his artwork wide ranging throughout the stages of his life. I really liked a lot of his work

Downstairs there was an exhibition on the subject of Laundry by a number of different artists and this was quite interesting to see a whole floor dedicated to the one subject. With a couple of other pieces downstairs relating to the topic.

Well worth a visit

I walked past by this art 'museum' numerous times throughout my walk in the Old Town. If you blink you might miss this. It is more of an art gallery that features in its permanent collection the work of Adamson Eric, an Estonian Artist.

I was so glad that I decided to step in and check out what this is all about. Currently their special exhibition is 'The City of Light. Estonian Artists in European Metropolises'. In this exhibition you can see the work of other Estonian artists such as Konrad Magi (love his oil painting titled 'Venice'); Karl Parsimagi ('Reclining Nude) and Eduard Wiilart to name a few examples.

I went in not knowing anything about Estonian artists but came out appreciating their work.

The entrance fee is Euro 3.50 and I thought it was money well spent. The museum is closed on Monday like most museums in this city.

This is a small museum in the old town but well worth a visit. On this particular occasion the museum had a brilliantly curated exhibition the 'Modern Woman' in Estonian late C19th and early C20th art. It was stunning and the short catalogue essay that accompanied the exhibition was wonderfully informative -- not only about the art works but about the evolution of women's rights in Estonia. The museum has a 20 year history of focusing on women in art history and regular events in line with this focus. Worth checking what their current exhibition is.

This is a small museum at the foot of the stepped street leading up to Toompea dedicated to the versatile 20th Century Estonian artist, Adamson-Eric. It contains a representative collection of his works ranging from paintings to textiles, ceramics to jewellery which are imaginatively displayed throughout the house to provide an accessible overview of the artist and his life. A good opportunity to learn about an interesting and idiosyncratic artist/designer and good value too.
