This lovely museum has a wonderful display of Estonian painter's work, displayed in the usual chronological order. From Old Town hop on Tram #1 to get to the museum and the nearby Kadriorg Park and Kadriog Palace.

For any art lover, the Kumu museum in Kadriorg Park is a must. The generous exhibits, primarily of Estonian painting since the late 18th century, are beautifully displayed and there are usually several special exhibits to augment the permanent collection. We saw a superb exhibit on the painter Nikolai Triik and also a very good exhibit of the works of... More

When I see negative reviews because the museum was closed in all or part, I think folks need to reconsider giving the whole museum a negative review. This is a beautiful building in a beautiful park and there is more than enough to enjoy in the exhibits. I enjoyed seeing work by artists from Estonia and the region. It doesn't... More

Kadriorg Park is a wonderful place to visit, and the Kumu Museum is a fascinating place, both architecturally and exhibition-wise. This is the place to see traditional Estonian art, and also the avant garde.

One never knows what to expect of art museums, and this was disappointing to me. For one thing, nearly half of the museum was closed. While much of the museum might interest locals, I did find the area named "Difficult Choices" interesting as it applied to the occupations era. The walk through the beautiful park and by the ponds and... More

When we bought a ticked no one told us that the 5th floor is closed for the changes. And that was the part where we wanted to spend most of our time. Otherwise the art is amazing.

A well designed museum featuring not only the most contemporary of Estonian art but a fantastic collection of Estonian up through the years. Well worth a half a day!

This new, partly underground art museum reminded us of Australia's Partliament House in its architectural design. The display of Estonian art was magnificent and we got to know the work of artists previously unknown to us. The Museum is easy to get to on the Hop On-Hop Off bus but as it is out of central Tallinn be sure to... More

It is a very modern museum with art suited to everyone's taste. A must for the art enthusiast. Near the Japanese Garden and continue on for a walk on the promenade.
