Kadriorg Art Museum. Mikkel Museum

J. Mikkel donated his foreign art collection to the Art Museum of Estonia (over 600 items). This is the first numerous and valuable private collection to be donated to the Art Museum. In order to provide an exposition space for the collection, the renovation of the kitchen building of the Kadriorg Palace was started in 1996; the opening of the Mikkel Museum took place in June, 1997.

The best of Johannes Mikkel's collection is displayed on the first floor of the palace kitchen building in Kadriorg. The history of this building goes back to the year 1721, when the predecessor of the present building was founded together with the palace and the surrounding park. It was a simple wooden outbuilding: only the cooking and baking rooms were made of stone. The kitchen was adjoined by an ice-cellar, a bread-store and special outbuilding for keeping tablecloths. Of those, only the ice-cellar is still standing.
