The museum is in the Kadrioru park, both worth taking a stroll in. The museum shows Estonian art from different times. A guide is recommended, especially if you aren't familiar with Estonian history. Naturally the works can be enjoyed as such. The building is modern and the cafeteria is nice for a break.

This museum is in a very cool building at the end of beautiful Kardriorg park. Nestled in the back, it has a surprisingly large contemporary collection and when I was there, two great exhibits. Worth the trek out of the city center.

I`m not a big fan of museums but this place was worth visiting. Take a guided tour and you will get more out of it. Ask a guide to tell a story about how architect of this building heard that he won a museum designing competition. Nice museum shop.

I walked from old town to Kumu, which took me about forty-five mins(I walked slowly and sometimes even took pics in the road). The looking, shape, and interior design of Kumu is modern and nice. I am not a fan or professional of art, but some exhibitions are really interesting; permanent one also gives me chances to know more about... More

One of the best museums of contemporary Art I have visited. The building is astonishingly beautiful surrounded by an enormous green area. The museum is outside the old town. I really enjoyed the quirky and sometimes grotesque sense of humor of the Estonian artist Marko Maëtamm. His horrific view of the family concept is hilarious. One caveat: I do not... More

I've lost track of how many times I've been to Kumu now, but I always enjoy it. The museum itself, architecturally, is as much of a drawcard for me as the collections it houses. I have my favourites among the permanent collections of Estonian art, but the top floor often hosts very good temporary exhibitions as well.

This is a great museum of modern Estonian art, as well as some more classic pieces. For a unique oversight of Estonian art, this is a must. It is a big museum spread over many floor. Was really impressed by the artwork on display.

The building is an attraction in its own right. It displays the art very well and the exhibitions will be of interest to any art lover interested in the art of Estonia. One section focuses on the period 1944 to 1991 while it was a Russian territory.

Very modern and beautiful building. Some permanent exhibitions and some temporary ones as well. On the ground floor there is a decent cafe for refreshments. On the first floor as well, but only open when it’s very crowded.
