Eduard Vilde Museum

The literary legacy and daily life of the beloved writer

Eduard Vilde was one of the most influential and successful Estonian writers of the 20th century, the first in several genres, and a personality who was ahead of his time in many ways.

His last home was in the Kadriorg district in Tallinn, in a house built for a castellan of Kadriorg Palace. The Museum has been operating there since 1946.

The museum’s permanent exhibition provides a comprehensive overview of the writer’s life and work. Visitors also get to know Vilde as a person through the home, which is authentic to its time. The interior of the Eduard Vilde Museum has been considered one of the best-preserved 1920s interiors in Estonia.

The second floor of the museum houses various art and literature exhibitions that change regularly.
