Rakvere Gallery is located on the historic Pikk Street, in the immediate vicinity of Vallimäe.
The aim of the Gallery is to introduce the art of Lääne-Virumaa with constantly changing exhibitions.
The house was built in 1908 by Julius Johannson, the wealthiest merchant of Rakvere at that time. Until 1916, Hilda Gfeser, a well-known actress-director, lived and worked in the Hat Business located in the building. In 1919-1927, the Viru County Government was located in the building.
Today, the Defense League's Viru Maleva headquarters and translation agency are located in the same building as the Rakvere Gallery.
