Visible storage gallery for the sculpture collection

Sculpture makes up a small but significant section of the museum’s foreign art collection and has rarely been displayed to the public. In the new visible storage space on the ground floor of Kadriorg Palace, visitors can explore artworks from the Western European and Russian sculpture collection, including over 250 works dating from the 18th to the 20th centuries. The bulk of the collection is formed by copies of classical sculptures and artworks from Soviet Russia. There are portraits and examples of figural and decorative sculpture.

The display in the gallery enables visitors to take a closer look at the art of sculpture and to discover the main techniques and materials used in sculpture.

Entrance to the visible storage gallery is free.

The gallery was set up with support from the Estonian National Heritage Board’s accelerator programme for museums.
