In the 1990s, Johannes Mikkel decided to give his unique collection to the Republic of Estonia on the condition that it be displayed in a museum of its own. In the midsummer of 1997, a museum dedicated to the art collection of Johannes Mikkel was opened in the former kitchen building of Kadriorg Palace to permanently house also the works of art currently on display there. In connection with the exhibition of Mart Lepp’s art collection in the Mikkel Museum and because of the cancellation of a major exhibition in the Kadriorg Art Museum due to the emergency situation, an extraordinary opportunity arose to show selected works from Johannes Mikkel’s collection in the majestic rooms of this historic palace. For a number of items, this is a return to the type of interiors for which they were originally intended, while for others it is a chance for a grand visit.
