The Estonian National Museum as a museum of Estonian people helps to interpret what it means to be an Estonian and preserves the fundamental values of the nation and its continuity. It opens both a material and virtual world that invites visitors to discover and become part of it.
The museum has two permanent exhibitions. The Encounters exhibition is a journey that brings together people who have lived here at different times and allows the visitors to take part in their daily activities. In addition, the permanent exhibition includes 11 thematic exhibitions, including The Language Brew and Man and the Environment.
The Echoes of Ural presents the traditional everyday culture of Finno-Ugric people.
