Estonian National Museum

Opened in 2016, the Estonian National Museum (ERM) is an immense facility just outside the centre of Tartu that serves as both the country’s primary history museum and a cutting-edge culture/event center. The museum provides a comprehensive showcase of Estonia’s ethnographic history, displaying a large number of high-tech installations as well as artefacts from the 110-year-old institution’s collection.

The building itself is unique in design and scale. Created by Paris-based architecture firm DGT, the award-winning structure covers an area of 33,876 square meters, with a full 6,134 square meters dedicated to exhibition space. The museum sits on a 40-hectare plot of land that was originally the site of a Baltic-German manor and later served as a Soviet military air base.

Meeting facilities

Estonian National Museum offers several function rooms. The largest room for conferences is a lecture hall that doubles as concert and cinema hall and accommodates 250 guests. There is also a black box theatre (seats 200 guests) and several meeting rooms for 30 to 50 people. Lobby areas can be used for receptions for max 1000 guests. Please see  ERM Conference Services catalogue for further information on their conference services .


“My Digital Planner” feature allows users to choose specific venues, hotels, activities and suppliers for their events, save their results as ‘favourites’, convert them PDF files and send the information by email.
