Exhibition "Live! The Story of Estonian Folk Brothers"

Republic of Estonia, Ida-Viru county, Narva city, St. Petersburg highway 2
September 24th, 2015 - January 20th, 2019

Since the 24th of September, the exhibition of the Estonian Theater and Music Museum "Live! Estonian folk songs" has been opened in the exhibition hall of the first floor of the Narva Castle.


In the Museum of Musical Instruments of Brussels, 92,000 people visited the exhibition in eight months, now the folk-guitar show can be seen in their home country.

The exhibition gives an overview of the most important Estonian folk instruments in both the retrospective and the modern way. Estonians of all ages have been living here for more than 10,000 years. The story of our folk instruments is influenced both by the local nature and the culture of our neighboring countries - Finland, Sweden, Russia - and Europe. The result is a special story about folk instruments and the tradition of LIFE!

The folk instruments of the century have been exhibited at the audience from the collections of the Estonian Theater and Music Museum and adjacent to the specially designed pills of Estonian folk cartoons.

The exhibition is based on the natural photographer Arne Ader's panoramic photographs of Estonian landscapes. In addition to the eyebrows, the exhibition gives an opportunity to try the folk musician at the hands-on exhibitions - to play tortillas, accordion and a cannon.

The 100th exhibition of the Republic of Estonia was first opened at the Brussels Musical Instrument Museum from 19 October 2017 to 17 June 2018.

Exhibitors: Igor Tõnur, Krista Sildoja, Tarmo Kivisilla, Raivo Sildoja, Risto Lehiste, Tanel Veeremaa. Designers: Katri Haarde, Margit Argus (KAOS Architects)

The exhibition was sponsored by the Estonian State Chancellery, the Republic of Estonia, and the International Program of the Presidency of the Estonian Council of the European Union.
