View on map

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 an overview of Adamson-Eric’s work.

The museum hosts educational programmes, workshops, and art camps for children. Guests can also 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 home with them.

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

In the NUMU application, Hugo, the alter ego of Adamson-Eric, will introduce the life and work of the artist to children and adults through his paintings, which come to life in the smart device.

Features and amenities
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 Art Museum of Estonia), and therefore, the Town Hall Square as well as Freedom Square are only a few minutes away.
