A vibrant cultural centre in the heart of the city

Located among a fascinating mix of historic buildings and modern architecture, the Rotermann Quarter has become one of the city’s cultural hotspots, offering visitors a unique opportunity to immerse themselves in the depths of art and history. The galleries and museums lining its maze-like streets open doors to different worlds, from classical art to modern cultural experiences.

Gallery Cafe

The Gallery Cafe is like a bridge between the worlds of art and gastronomy. This is where the tranquillity of breakfast, the liveliness of lunch and the depth of evening debates meet the changing exhibitions of modern art. It is thanks to the latter that the walls of the Gallery Cafe come to life again each season, always offering visitors new visual experiences, while delicious food pleases the taste buds

Estonian Museum of Architecture

The Estonian Museum of Architecture, which has taken it upon itself to record, preserve and raise awareness of the history and development of Estonian architecture since it was established in 1991, has grown to become an indispensable guardian of cultural heritage. The museum is housed in the historic Rotermann Salt Store, an architectural gem dating back over a century. The museum’s permanently displayed collection of scale models gives visitors a unique opportunity to take a look at the most important moments of Estonian 20th century architecture, combining the past and the present into a coherent whole.

Main square and sculpture circle

Rotermann’s main square is a unique meeting place, hosting a variety of outdoor events, exhibitions and cultural events throughout the year, bringing together locals and visitors alike. Particularly noteworthy is the traditional Chinese New Year celebrations, with an animal sculpture made by Estonian sculptors arriving in the Quarter to symbolise the new beginning. But the Quarter offers more – just off the main square, on the street leading to the harbour, you will find Elo Liiv’s permanent exhibition, which presents the 12 animal characters of the Chinese zodiac in a unique way, depicting them only as heads. It is definitely worth a visit to see your zodiac animal in a whole new light.
