Niguliste Museum

The Niguliste Museum is one of the few northern European museums located in a former church, where ecclesiastical art can be enjoyed in its historical context. Late medieval altarpieces and wooden sculptures form the core of the collection. The best-known work in the museum is the Danse Macabre painted by Bernt Notke at the end of the 15th century. A large part of the exhibition is comprised of post-Reformation ecclesiastical art from the 16th–17th centuries. The Silver Chamber, opened in 2001, displays a selection of objects from the silver collection of the Art Museum of Estonia.
