Tallinn Russian Museum

Reflections on the Estonian-Russian identity

The Tallinn Russian Museum studies and introduces Russian culture in Estonia and values the local historical heritage and the national diversity of contemporary culture.

The museum shares reflections on Estonian-Russian identity through dialogue, discussion, and self-expression. There is no permanent exhibition in the Tallinn Russian Museum. Its program of exhibitions and activities is created in cooperation between the museum and Russian-speaking ethnic minorities, interested communities, and their representatives.

The museum is located in Tallinn’s Old Town, in a medieval building at Pikk 29A, which was the first location of the studio-school of the painter Ants Laikmaa.

The Tallinn Russian Museum is a branch of the Tallinn City Museum and is paired with the House of Peter the Great as a singular museum unit.
