Estonian Museum of Architecture The Estonian Museum of Architecture was founded on January 1, 1991. It was established with the aim of collecting, preserving and researching the Estonian architectural heritage of the 20th century. Over time, educational work and the organisation of various events related to architecture have become an increasingly important part of the museum's activities.
The museum is located in the former salt warehouse of Rotermann, which was built in 1908 and is a remarkable example of industrial architecture in Tallinn.
The museum is aimed at professionals, tourists and schoolchildren alike. The museum has both solo exhibitions of architects as well as exhibitions covering different periods in history. International exhibitions also play an important role here. The Estonian Museum of Architecture has an outstanding archive of drawings and projects from the 1920s-30s and the Soviet era, a photo library and a collection of architectural models which is constantly being expanded.
At the UURI RUUMI exhibition (Explore Space!) in the basement hall the visitor can touch, smell, touch and examine everything with their eyes, ears and hands and suddenly realize: they perceive space and understand the essence of architecture. There is also an architectural school in the museum building.
