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...More

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...More

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...More

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...More

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...More
