About
Ants Laikmaa was one of the most colourful personalities of Estonian art, having gained prominence both as a portrait painter and a landscape artist. His favourite technique was pastel. In 1917 here, on the Tammiku Farm land in the village of Kadarpiku, Ants Laikmaa began the building of a new home. In 1932 the artist closed down his studio-school in Tallinn and moved to this parish of Taebla. His house was completed, built in a folk-romantic style, unique for Estonia at that time. In 1960 it was opened to the public as a museum, showcasing Ants Laikmaa's studio, living and working quarters. Take a walk in the picturesque park and visit the artist's final resting place at his home farm.

We were welcomed by the hostess who told us about the artists life and paintings. The house has very interesting architecture and interior design is authentic.
Definitely visit when in Haapsalu!

As well as a collection of photographs relating to artist Ants Laikma's life and a reproduction of his living quarters, this house museum has a beautiful garden with trees dedicated to famous Estonian cultural figures. Enjoy the distinctive architecture, the archival photos and the garden setting. Good at any time, perfect when the sun shines.
