Exhibition of artist’s work excellent.
Small exhibition of handbags interesting for those who like handbags and the place was rather full of handbag fans.
Staff unwelcoming to the point of rudeness unfortunately.

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

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.

This was one of the top things to see in our one-day Tallinn visit. First floor had a visiting exhibition of paintings by turn-of-the-20th-century women artists; quite nice selection with several rare works. But the second floor, the "basic" collection: superb! Adamson-Eric's late impressionism was shown in its full bloom, with works from 1920s to the after-war times, landscapes, portraits, still lifes. Besides the paintings, the collection includes designs (china, textiles, jewellery) to show Adamson-Eric's gifts in other fiels. There are some magnificent works by Adamson-Eric in KUMU, but this museum in very central place offered so much more that it is hard to describe. A must to see again in our next visit!

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
