The Episcopal castle of Haapsalu is one of the oldest castles in Estonia. The entire compound on 3 hectares is like one big museum. Here you can find much of the kind that you cannot find elsewhere: the unique, 803-meter long circular wall; internal defence system with earth ramparts and trenches; the only Dome Church in Estonia preserved in its historical integrity and many other things that can be labelled as exceptional and unique. One can spend days in the castle studying the different layers of the wall from the 13th-16th centuries, discover details of stonework, stairways, master signs carved into stone etc. There are people who come to visit the castle and each time the castle offers them new surprises. The walls of the castle are like a book, which can be read, but in order to read you have to know the secret language and the key to this is the knowledge accumulated over the years.

Kohtla-Järve Museum of Oil Shale is an academic museum that was established in 1966. Its visitors have access to a permanent display that reflects the formation of oil shale as a rock, as well as the history of its mining industry and the present value of oil shale. In the museum collection, at the disposal of researchers, there are more than 27’000 units. In addition to the articles of economic history are more than 600 works of art, the oldest of which dates back to the 1920’s. In May 2006 a database was set up to house a digital representation of the collection at the museum. Since then items have been added to this digital store, same year Museum of Oil Shale web site have been published on Internet. As of 2008, this site has made an English version available to its users. Since the 1st of October 2006 the structure of the museum has been altered to accommodate several other independent units used to organize art exhibitions. One example of this is Kohtla-Järve White Hall, formerly the City Gallery, whose main task was organization of art exhibitions in cooperation with Kohtla-Järve Artist Association. Yet another example is the Virtual Branch of the State Russian Museum, whose objective was the organization of virtual excursions. Currently the collection houses more than 50 units of video materials detailing both Russian and world-wide cultural heritage. As of October 2006 a project translating finished programs to Estonian was started. At the same time an active search of contacts with other museums across Europe was made in order to enrich the museum’s video material collection. There is currently a permanent collaboration with the schools of Kohtla-Järve, and indeed with IT and Art teachers. Since 2007, the Museum of Oil Shale has been situated in Kukruse village. This location is very symbolic as there has been a history of mining of oil shale in Kukruse for 90 years. Another important factor has been the immediate vicinity of the Tallinn – St. Petersburg highway. In the future a chief task of the museum is the digitization of its collection into databases. It is hoped that this will create, in collaboration with its partners, several virtual teaching and excursion programs on the subject of economic history, all available in several different languages.

Art Museum of Estonia was founded on November 17th, 1919, but it was not until 1921 that it got its first permanent building – the Kadriorg Palace, built in the 18th century. In 1929 the palace was expropriated from the Art Museum in order to rebuild it as the residence of the President of Estonia. The Art Museum of Estonia was housed in several different temporary spaces, until it moved back to the palace in 1946. In September, 1991 the Kadriorg Palace was closed, because it had totally deteriorated by then. At the end of the year the Supreme Council of the Republic of Estonia decided to guarantee the construction of a new building for the Art Museum of Estonia in Kadriorg. Untill then the Knighthood House at Toompea Hill served as the temporary main building of the Art Museum of Estonia. The exhibition there was opened on April 1, 1993. Art Museum of Estonia premanently closed down the exhibitions in that building in October 2005.
At the end of the 1970s, in the 1980s the first branches of the Art Museum of Estonia were founded. Starting from the 1995 all the branches offer different educational programmes for children and young people.  In 1996 the exhibition hall on the first floor of Rotermann Salt Storage was opened, this branch was closed in May 2005. In summer 2000 the restored Kadriorg Palace was opened, but not as the main building of the Art Museum of Estonia, but as a branch. Kadriorg Art Museum now exhibits the foreign art collection of the Art Museum of Estonia.
At present there are five active branches of the Art Museum of Estonia: Kadriorg Art Museum (Kadriorg Palace and Mikkel Museum), Niguliste Museum, Adamson-Eric Museum, and Kumu Art Museum (the new main building of the Art Museum of Estonia).
For the first time during its nearly 100-year-old history, the Art Museum of Estonia has a building that both meets the museum's requirements and is worthy of  Estonian art in its collections. Kumu Art Museum is a multifunctional art museum that includes exhibition halls, an auditorium that offers diverse possibilities, and an education centre for children and art lovers of all ages.

Kuressaare
Kuressaaren Piispanlinna Saaremaa Museum was established on 17th February 1865 when the Research Society of Saaremaa (Verein zur Kunde Oesels) was founded in Kuressaare. J. B. Holzmayer, a teacher of classical languages of Kuressaare Gymnasium, did a lot to start and develop the museum. The antiquities found during archaeological excavations organized by Mr. Holzmayer became the basis of the museum. The collections of the Society were initially located in the building of Kuressaare Gymnasium. In 1892, the museum was in Kuressaare Castle already. During the first quarter of the century the location of the museum was changed several times. After World War I the museum together with the castle were administered by Saaremaa County Government, from 1934 by Kuressaare City Government. In 1925, the exhibits were finally taken to the rooms of the upper floor of the castle. During World War II part of the exhibits got lost. The museum was reopened to the public in 1947. Today it is one of the most important scientific and cultural institutions in Saaremaa County. After the reconstruction of the castle, new modern exhibitions of Saaremaa's history (1985-1987) and nature (1993) were opened. Besides up to 30 temporary exhibitions, numerous concerts and other cultural events are organized in the museum each year. Every second year the Annals of the Museum are published.
