The Estonian Museum of Applied Art and Design is located in a late 17th-century storehouse in medieval Tallinn Old Town. The building's irregular white walls and vaulted ceilings provide an original backdrop to the largest selection of Estonian applied art and design including textiles, ceramics, glass, leather, metalwork, jewellery and product design. The collection's origins go back to 1919 when the Art Museum of Estonia was founded.

The 17,000 items represent 20th century and contemporary applied art, featuring both artists' pieces and products of distinguished workshops and manufacturers. The latest section of the collection, established in 1999, is dedicated to the best local product design from Luther furniture to Stigo electric scooters. In addition to the permanent display, temporary exhibitions on the ground floor showcase fresh perspectives; there is also a museum store and a charming inner courtyard.
