Mati Unt Museum

The story of a legendary cultural innovator

 Mati Unt was an Estonian writer and theatre director from the legendary “Golden Sixties” generation and brought new energy and a modernist approach to cultural life. The museum operates in the Kadriorg district in the former home of the writer, where you can learn about his life and work. You can also see objects that belonged to Mati Unt, books with his notes and dedications, and fascinating photos from Unt’s own camera.

The museum is located in the building where the writer lived between 1995 and 2005, however, the museum has also recreated Unt’s apartment in Mustamäe in the 1970s and 1980s, a frequent gathering place for the artistic community in these years.
