After extensive renovations, the Estonian Theatre and Music Museum is open with a permanent exhibition ‘Stories and Songs’. Stories and songs play an important role in every culture; they unite people and preserve our history. The museum tells the story of Estonian history using classic Estonian literature and songs, while at the same time looking at music and theatre in the context of late 19th century education, village life, Estonian independence in 1918, Baltic German power, the church, the Soviet period, and childhood. 'Stories and Songs' received the Annual Award of Estonian Museums for Best Permanent Exhibition of 2017. There is also plenty of things to entertain the little ones, like instruments to play and costumes to try on. On the top floor, there is also an attic where children can play until their parents delve into extensive information on the screens. Until November 11 a temporary exhibition 'VELJO TORMIS – A World Born Of Folk Song' is on display to celebrate Veljo Tormis' 90th anniversary. Exhibition mainly focuses on his works based on runic songs.
