Viinistu Art Museum

In the little coastal village of Viinistu, you can visit an Art Museum located in an old cold storage of a fish processing plant.

Viinistu Art Museum displays works of hundreds of Estonian artists of various eras; this means about 1,000 Estonian works of art, starting from the Baltic-German era and Pallase school until today. The owner of the comprehensive art collection is Jaan Manitski.

Exhibitions alternating each month in the so-called barrel galleries converted from old water tanks offer plenty to enjoy.

Good to know: seasonally, theatre productions and concerts of different performers are also organized in the museum.
