    Adamson-Eric Museum

    The vibrant works of Adamson-Eric, one of the most versatile Estonian artists of the 20th century, live in this curious museum.

    Adamson-Eric (1902-1968), worked in a number of disciplines ranging from oil paints to furniture design. His creations, displayed in this medieval-merchant-house-turned-museum, include bright oil paintings, cave paintings on teapots, inventive jewellery and a variety of other items. The originality and power of his work makes it seem fresh, even today.

    Entrance is free with Tallinn Card.
