The museum houses Estonian art in a modern building with a sharply designed exterior (but rather simple interior). There are 3 floors of exhibitions, with the first 2 exhibiting Estonian art from the 18th onwards. A good introduction and walkthrough to the largely realist and nonconformist works, but I must admit that Estonian art isn't really my thing. The top... More

The exterior appearance looked so beautiful. I took a star away, because it was not the most convenient place to visit. It has the beautiful park and the president's house with security guards nearby. I wish to come here again to spend a half day.

You can get very good view of Estonian art history and it`s main lines through the times. The 4th floor was new art. Could be more attractions around the museum.

The museum performs a new architecture, really interesting. High level exhibitions are changing often and you always have a new reason to visit there. The museum also has the restaurant of good quality.

I loved visiting Kumu. The architecture is astonishing and exhibits are really interesting. I didn't love the Beauty and Death exhibit that they had while I was there, but the rest were great. Loved learning about Estonian art.

KUMU is a great art gallery and the overall feel of the museum is wonderful. The building itself is full of light and is incredibly beautiful. Wandering through the exhibits is a great way to learn more about Estonia and see some fantastic artwork. The newest collection, Surm & Ilu (Death & Beauty) is extremely dark and gothic and definitely... More

The Kumu museum is located in a beautiful area of Tallinn, a short taxi/bus ride or pleasant walk away from the centre. It features interchanging and permanent collections; of the permanent ones the most interesting was the collection of Estonian art from the time of the Soviet regime, with its explanations about soviet realism.
