One year after its opening on October 17, 2018, the Arvo Pärt Centre in Estonia has drawn a thoroughly positive balance. More than 33,000 people have visited the centre in Laulasmaa, some 35 kilometres west of the capital Tallinn. The Arvo Pärt Centre combines the composer’s personal archive with an information and music centre. It is an open meeting place for musicians, researchers and music lovers.

The Arvo Pärt Centre was founded in 2010 in Laulasmaa by the family of the composer. In the beginning, the centre was hosted in a private house. Construction work on the new building began in March 2017, with the Arvo Pärt Centre opening its doors to visitors on 17 October 2018.
