Current and former residents of Kalamaja contributed to the permanent exhibition with memorabilia and memories of their everyday lives. The stories behind the local buildings and people will start to unfold as you explore the exhibition. The museum will give you a sense of what's so unique about Kalamaja – however, for a more in-depth looks nothing beats a walk around the local streets themselves. Though the building may be small, the museum's collections are extensive. That's why Kalamaja Museum regularly displays its exhibits in other urban spaces.
