This museum offers a record of the phases of Estonian culture and history and serves as an introduction to a cultural archipelago, Fenno-Ugric languages and cultures. Rather than existing as a spatial continuity, these cultures are geographically scattered. Consequently, the museum is conceived as an archipelago as well: The exhibition spaces are ‘islands’, surrounded by a ‘flood’ of spaces. Islands exist in ‘water’ – oceans, rivers, or lakes which sort material into geological layers, becoming sedimentary rock and islands.
