Art Museum of Estonia
Museum of Estonia was founded on November 17th , 1919, but it was not until 1921 that it got its first permanent building – the Kadriorg Palace , built in the 18th century . In 1929 the palace was
expropriated from the Art Museum in order to rebuild it as the residence of the President of Estonia. The Art Museum of Estonia was
housed in several different temporary spaces, until it moved back to
the palace in 1946. In September, 1991 the Kadriorg Palace was
closed, because it had totally deteriorated by then. At the end of
the year the Supreme Council of the Republic of Estonia decided to
guarantee the construction of a new building for the Art Museum of
Estonia in Kadriorg. Untill then the Knighthood House at Toompea Hill served as the temporary main building of the Art Museum
of Estonia. The exhibition there was opened on April 1, 1993. Art
Museum of Estonia premanently closed down the exhibitions in that
building in October 2005.
the end of the 1970s, in the 1980s the first branches of the Art
Museum of Estonia were founded. Starting from the 1995 all the
branches offer different educational programmes for children and
young people.  In 1996 the exhibition hall on the first floor of Rotermann Salt Storage  was opened, this branch was closed in May
2005. In summer 2000 the restored Kadriorg Palace was
opened, but not as the main building of the Art Museum of Estonia,
but as a branch. Kadriorg Art Museum now exhibits the foreign art collection of the Art Museum of Estonia.
At present there are  five active branches of the Art
Museum of Estonia
