Tallinn: Kalev Marzipan Museum Room


 

 

The marzipan museum room gives a good overview of the history of marzipan – how the medicine made at the pharmacies during the Middle Ages became a well-known sweet. The exhibition displays approximately 200 marzipan figurines, cards and cakes, which have been made with moulds that are more than a hundred years old. At the museum, you can also observe the art of marzipan painting: an artist is constantly working in the museum, painting marzipan figurines also according to the wishes of the visitors, adding personal wishes etc.  16 Pikk Street,  Old Town, Tallinn, Estonia.
