The museum, which is located in a medieval Old Town storehouse, displays the works of Estonian jewellery, textile, metal, glass and ceramic artists and designers from the beginning of the 20th century to the present day.
About 15,000 museum items form one of the most valuable and comprehensive collections of Estonian professional applied art and design; in addition, we have a collection of photos, negatives and slides, a specialist library and an archive.
