I got insight not only in Estonia's fine, modern and graphic art, but also to Estonia's history, way to their view towards life and influence from neighbour countries. Kumu Art Museum is located in the middle of huge park and not far from the beach.

Interesting exhibitions of Estonian art and from abroad. One can walk around the halls and learn a lot about the temporary art of Estonia. One of the most recently built museums of art in Europe.

We had just a short time in Tallinn and decided to visit the Kumu. It was a good decision and we enjoyed it so much. I understand that the access is not easy by public transport but it was a lovely day so we walked there. It took about 40 minutes from the hotel. It has a mix of classical... More

Tallinners are rightly proud of this museum. Its Estonian art collection gives a good insight into the local spirit through the ages. Not least fascinating is the floor dedicated to "a delicate choice"- i.e. the situation facing artists during Soviet occupation. First class cafe too.

I agree with the writer before me who complains about the access to the museum. From the hop on hop off bus (who at first wasn't even planning to stop and dropped us off 100 meters after the official stopping spot) it seems like a never ending flight of stairs takes you into the depths where the entrance to the...

Most tourists will go to Kumu on the Hop on Hop off bus. When they arrive they will find the access is terrible. On the Green Line they stop almost a km away and point in the distance to Kumu On the Red Line the bus stops on a motorway and they point to steps up the gorge face. This... More

I loved this place! The wonderful sleek design of the building paired with some great content made it a total hit for me. That it was located in the beautiful Kadriorg park didn't exactly hurt either. The art really appealed to me and I liked the mix of modern and classic paintings with statues and the like. I wish I...

It takes about 15 minutes to get there on the tram/trolley. But an easy interesting ride. Interesting art work. Definitely do not miss this museum if you like more modern art.

I am an artist and will always go to see the local museums and I must say that I was really taken with this museum - I loved it and was really able to get a pretty good understanding of all the artists and influences over the last 100 years or so - the building itself is amazing. I would... More
