A blast from the past from the world of style in the history of lovers! Also, as well as a café, Museum shop to make some yummy these tolerances in the ...

  • Because of his artistic education, museums, visited a lot. Why is this better? Why should it be sure to visit? There are several reasons: 1. Architecture-building is not adapted to Museum and specially designed, very brave and resourceful young Finnish architect. Already from parokvki (free by the way) and located at 500 meters from the entrance, the architecture begins. The underpass under the desolate dear prepares to something special its inexplicable discarded in this place and amazing sculpture, designed there. Of course, being in the Museum courtyard, you realize that meant this transition! It is only a small part architectural masterpiece, entirely made up of them. 2. exposure and exposure. The absence of high-profile names (accepted world hierarchy) is a plus! In the "main" museums go on their "top treasures" (which are now better and more details could and should look into network resources) forgetting the basic concept of any art collection-reflect the culture of the country, time, era, tracing the direction of weather vanes-sensitive currents and directions. This problem is solved brilliantly! Almost all works of art are exhibited with the best conditions and visibility and to publicize and jekitetazhu (in three languages). The size of the exhibit and its location on the three floors absolutely tired, every Hall as another dish a feast and intrigues and attracts and nourishes. 3. Attitude. Tickets-family-12 euros. To go with children. Then they formed a positive attitude to art museums, which perhaps they will retain all his life. For those who are tired-elevators. For those who want a longer "hang" from any of the exhibit-when entering the Hall there are folding chairs (that you can carry with them). No "grannies"-smotritel'nic that the janitor cleaning the view in the female dorm look at each. On the contrary, on the top floor (where the actual art) is one of the collaborators of the Museum held me detailed tour on a different Russian-showed where to look, where to turn, where the wait for events and where the best view of the Tallinn!
