Great building, great art

Well worth visiting, Kumu has a great range of contemporary, modern and traditional art on show. It has a nice cafe as well. The building is well worth a visit on its own.

I liked it alot, have been here multible times for different exhibitions and to revisit the recident exhibitions too. It is sometimes difficult with a small kid because sometimes the exhibits are too close together to pass by with a baby buggy but otherwise very spacy and nice.

Go for a good grounding in Estonian art and delight in the architecture. Definitely put it on your list.

A great selection of Estonian art, spanning through centuries. A magnificent building, the architecture alone makes it worth a visit (or perhaps I should call it art-itecture!) I greatly enjoy the permanent exhibitions and always try to visit when I am in town, they also hold temporary exhibitions so keep an Eye on their website. The gift shop has a... More

Very impressive collection of Estonian contemporary art. Permanent exhibition is worth of visiting and some temporary exhibitions can just surprise you. In the summer 2015 there is for example an exhibition of estonian artist Marko Mäetamm. Very funny and cheerful. The cafeteria serves lunch and prices are not too high.

I love this Art Museum! The architecture is fascinating and the permanent Estonian Art collection is amazing but also the constantly changing temporary exhibitions are great. For me this museum is a MUST every time I come to Tallinn. And don't forget to visit the Kadriorg Museum built as a palace.

Excellent modern art museum. Walkable from the town centre if you feel so inclined, last part is through the park. Cafe isn't bad either.

There was plenty to see at this modern art museum as there were several floors packed with art/photos etc. Focus on Estonian art. Not normally a modern art fan but there was art for all here.

Check out the Soviet era pop art (permanent exhibition)! They also have cool movie-nights with great docs (free entrance mostly + English subtitles) - check out the program in advance. Take a stroll in Kadriorg park when you go there, you'll also pass the residency of the Estonian President (and be surprised by the chill atmosphere around it).

...in a new and attractive museum. No crowds, no blockbusters, no showing off, but a well-thought-out display of Latvian art from classical to contemporary through a confused Soviet period when local artists struggled between Socialist Realism and aspirations to modernity. Very instructive and well worth an afternoon.
