This small but very interesting museum is located in Lühike Jalg street.If you have TALLINN CARD, visiting will be free for you.
You can see a lot of nice works of Estonian painters. Especially of works of Adamson-Eric, famous and interesting painter.

Nice site to learn about a new artist
Jul 2019 • Solo
Like most travelers, I had not heard of Adamson Eric before visiting Tallinn. It's free to get in with the Tallinn Card, so it's worth a quick visit. Right next to the Short Leg Gate, but the tourists just pass by, so I had the place to myself. Just a few galleries, but a good overview of a new (to me) artist.

Small in size but big on talent
Jun 2018 • Friends
The permanent exhibition is a showcase of the wideranging talent of Eric Adamson, with paintings, sculpture and ceramic art on show upstairs. The temporary exhibition downstairs showed the work of an Estonian- Australian artist Gunnar Neeme. The exhibition is on until 28 October. Downstairs was s workroom where you could learn about myths from many lands and try your hand at painting stones. A great activity for children

A quirky place

An unusual exhibition, it is quite small but very interesting. Eric Adamson tried all sorts of different arts, painting, furniture, jewellery, porcelain. It makes for something different, very pleasant.

Such a charming museum
Apr 2017 • Family
Pop into this little museum and get acquainted with a very versatile artist! Our 7-year-old daughter often becomes bored in big museums, but the small size of this one was just right. She really enjoyed the children's craft area in the basement. The temporary exhibit while we were there was particularly interesting, with a unique and charming theme. This museum is smartly curated, isn't overwhelming, and is a little treasure.

Small but satisfying exhibition
Jul 2017 • Solo
Unless you're a true art lover you probably won't spend more than half an hour here total, but for all that the collection of Adamson's art is wide-ranging (paintings, ceramics, textiles, furniture and more) and engaging. The current temporary exhibition focuses on Estonian glass art - one of my favourite genres - and although the two rooms that showcase it mean a limited number of examples, it's a case of quality over quantity.

You can even draw there
May 2017 • Couples
It is a wonderful art museum in the very centre of Tallinn with a nice collection of impressionistic art. The place also offers workshops - you can come in and draw there! How cool is that! There's also kids drawing classes and it us just a very nice place overall.

Compact Museum but well worth going in
May 2017 • Couples
I had never heard of Adamson-Eric who it turns out was Estonia's premier artist but the displays of his work across a number of mediums were excellent and his artwork wide ranging throughout the stages of his life. I really liked a lot of his work

Downstairs there was an exhibition on the subject of Laundry by a number of different artists and this was quite interesting to see a whole floor dedicated to the one subject. With a couple of other pieces downstairs relating to the topic.

Well worth a visit

Small but definitely worth a visit if you want to see Estonia Art
Jun 2016
I walked past by this art 'museum' numerous times throughout my walk in the Old Town. If you blink you might miss this. It is more of an art gallery that features in its permanent collection the work of Adamson Eric, an Estonian Artist.

I was so glad that I decided to step in and check out what this is all about. Currently their special exhibition is 'The City of Light. Estonian Artists in European Metropolises'. In this exhibition you can see the work of other Estonian artists such as Konrad Magi (love his oil painting titled 'Venice'); Karl Parsimagi ('Reclining Nude) and Eduard Wiilart to name a few examples.

I went in not knowing anything about Estonian artists but came out appreciating their work.

The entrance fee is Euro 3.50 and I thought it was money well spent. The museum is closed on Monday like most museums in this city.

Small but perfectly formed
Jun 2015 • Couples
This is a small museum in the old town but well worth a visit. On this particular occasion the museum had a brilliantly curated exhibition the 'Modern Woman' in Estonian late C19th and early C20th art. It was stunning and the short catalogue essay that accompanied the exhibition was wonderfully informative -- not only about the art works but about the evolution of women's rights in Estonia. The museum has a 20 year history of focusing on women in art history and regular events in line with this focus. Worth checking what their current exhibition is.
