Having experienced visits to galleries in NYC, Paris, London, Amsterdam, Dallas , Toronto etc, this National Gallery is a treasure. The current exhibits are breathtaking ( fashion in the 1920's). Slowly walking through the galleries and appreciating the quality is simply therapeutic . Even the gift shop is a treasure rather than a rip off ! We simply did not... More

We spent the morning at the Kumu Art Museum on a snowy day in Tallinn and we thought the museum was done up real well. A lot of good Estonian art from different time periods and the museum is laid out in a nice manner where its easy to navigate. There is a café on sight that serves food and... More

Kumu Art Gallery juts out from a limestone hill in Kadriorg Park and was designed by the Finnish architect, Pekka Vapaavuori. Its modern design is strikingly different to the baroque architecture of the nearby Kadriorg Palace, yet it seems in harmony with its surroundings. Apart from its wonderful architecture, the gallery offers visitors a comprehensive overview of Estonian art, from... More

I went to see only the temporary exhibition about the Art Deco fashion as I love the 20s and 30s- when there were still gentlemen and ladys around :). The exhibition was put together very nicely and I could spend all day there and admire the dresses. Next time I will visit the art museum itself also ;)

I went there for second time, the first one was ~3 years ago and this time I was really dissapointed as the exhibitions were much boring. There were full of many paintings, some sculptors and that is it. As a temporarary exhibition were dresses of 1920-1930, I think this I liked the best. Of course, the building is great, built...

The walk from the tram-stop through the park to the museum is beautiful (at least in good weather...), and the coffee-shop service is very friendly. The art on show is of course a matter of personal opinions, but the whole set-up is very good.

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
