Overall visit

"Encounters" talks about the regular Estonian people who have lived here through the ages. Visitors are invited to peek into their daily lives, to observe the way they have fought to get by, living in either the city or the countryside - but also the way they have navigated the social norms of their times, the powers that be of any period in history, or the greater processes of world history. The exhibition gives the visitors glimpses into the language, folklore and skills of the people who live in Estonia. The Estonian National Museum displays thousands of artefacts and images, and hundreds of sound recordings from both their own archives and the archives and collections of other museums in Estonia from all periods. Several of these exhibits are displayed to the public for the first time.
