Adamson-Eric Museum

Adamson-Eric was one of the most versatile Estonian artists of the 20th century. Known primarily as an accomplished painter, the artist worked in almost all fields of applied art. The permanent exhibition in a medieval merchant’s house is a cross-section of Adamson-Eric’s work.

The museum hosts educational programmes, workshops and art camps for children. Adults can go on tours with our curator or participate in workshops and art courses. In the Art Cellar, every visitor can become a creator and make a souvenir to take along.

Our projects include special events, lecture series, concerts, theatre productions, dance productions, film screenings, etc.

Getting there

The Adamson-Eric Museum is located in a small medieval house at the bottom of the stepped street called Lühike Jalg (Short Leg), which has an eye-catching round wrought sign hanging above the door. The steps of the Lühike Jalg are the most direct route between the Lower Town and Toompea Hill, and therefore, you will definitely pass the Adamson-Eric Museum on your way up to Toompea Hill or back down again. It is located almost next to St. Nicholas’s Church (Niguliste Museum, a branch of the AME), and therefore, the Town Hall Square as well as Freedom Square are only a few minutes away.
