MUSEUM OF ESTONIANS ABROAD

Where our history lives on!

In 2009 the Estonian Studies Centre was established at Tartu College with the aim to consolidate Canadian-Estonians' archives and libraries into one repository- The Museum of Estonians Abroad (VEMU). The Estonian Studies Centre has been a registered charity with tax concession rights (reg. nr. 80412 0020 RR0001) since 2011.

Piret Noorhani has been working as Chief Archivist at the Estonian Studies Centre since November 2009.

WHAT DO WE OFFER?
The Archival holdings currently have over 60 personal and organizations' archives. In addition to documents, the archive also has major holdings of photographs, sound recordings and films.

The Archival Library has ca 10,000 books as well as numerous newspapers, magazines and printed materials.

Most of the material in both the archive and library is in Estonian. Since this is an archive, the materials can be used only on site. However, it is possible to order copies.

The Cultural Heritage Society has collected over 1200 DVDs, the majority of them interviews with Estonians.

The Estonian Studies Library has over 1200 contemporary books printed in Estonian and elsewhere (primarily history, memoirs, biographies, fiction, art and science).

Lectures, seminars, exhibitions and film showings present Estonian culture and history to both Estonian and English speaking audiences.
