Owner description: Kondas Center primarily focuses on naive and "outsider" art. The museum was opened in 2003 in a late 19th century rectory building. We have a permanent exhibition of Estonia's most famous naive painter Paul Kondas - who lived in Viljandi most of his life. Kondas' most well-known painting is "Strawberry Eaters", hence one may find large concrete strawberries allover the streets of Viljandi. We do some 30 temporary exhibitions yearly, half of them are by self-taught artists and the other half by professional artists.

This welcoming museum in the tow of Viljandi is worth a trip. In addition to its permanent collection of the works of its namesake, each room in this intimate space exhibited the works of naive artists from several countries and traditions. There was much to see and enjoy, including crafts focused on strawberries, an image central to an important painting in the collection. This is a wonderful place to enjoy art in the context of village life. The staff is English speaking and will be happy to show you around. Don't miss this very special museum.
