NATIONAL HERITAGE BOARD ARCHIVES

The National Heritage Board archives contain documents related to the protection, studies, conservation, restoration and reconstruction of cultural monuments, including historical statements, research papers, special conditions, working drawings, location plans, etc.


The archives comprise two funds: the National Heritage Board fund and the fund of RAS Eesti Ehitusmälestised (Estonian construction monuments fund). The latter includes besides the materials of RAS Eesti Ehitusmälestised also documents from the times of the Scientific Restoration Workshop (TRT), Restoration Administration of the Republic (VRV) and the National Institute of Planning Cultural Monuments (KRPI).

 

In addition, our archives contain a large collection of photos and negatives.

 

We are open for everyone for in-house work with archived documents.

Wireless Internet can be used in the archives.

Currently, in cooperation with the National Archives, information on documents contained in our archives (fund of RAS Eesti Ehitusmälestised (ERA.T-76.1.) and National Heritage Board fund (ERA.5025.2.)) is being entered in the AIS (www.ais.ra.ee) database. In order to facilitate search in the AIS (the information system of the archives), enter the registry number (in the form 'reg no. ...’) or location of the object (municipality and name of the object).
