The Estonian National Museum in cooperation with the Ministry of Culture and the Union of Estonian Architects announces an international architecture competition for the new Estonian National Museum building.
The Estonian National Museum was founded in 1909. The museum’s mission is the collection, preservation, research and presentation of the culture and history of the Estonian people, other Finno-Ugric nations, and minorities in Estonia. The Estonian National Museum is currently housed in different buildings in the city centre of Tartu. The new Estonian National Museum building is to be a visitor-friendly and attractive modern museum and cultural complex whose sphere of influence will not be confined to Tartu, but rather will extend to all of Estonia and its populace.
