It's an amazing purpose built building unfortunately the quality of the exhibitions is pretty poor compared to most galleries . There seemed to be little coherence to the collections almost as though the curators had just picked up a load of unwanted art on the cheap. It's a shame because the building deserves better. Worth a visit if you have... More

A beautiful museum in a beautiful designed building.The permanent exhibition gives you a very good impression of the numerous historical and political changes in Estonia. Specifically the exhibitions "Treasury" (Estonian art from the 18th century till 1945) and "difficult choices" ( Estonian art from 1945 till1991) are , next to beautiful paintings, also giving a better understanding of Estonia's history....

Awarded the European Museum of the Year award in 2008 this art gallery is very special. The building built into a grassy verge at the eastern edge of Kadriarg Park is a spectacular sight in itself. Inside there are exhibitions on Classics of Estonian Art eighteenth century to 1945 , Difficult Choices Estonian Art 1945 to 1991 plus contemporary and... More

Surrounding park area makes for some beautiful pictures in the spring. Building itself is very striking as you approach, we were quite late in the day so didn't get long to walk around. Exhibits range from conventional to slightly off the best and track, some left us completely confused. Design of the museum is interesting, lots of money has been... More

Excellent art museum. Both the building itself and the base exhibition are great. Beside that there is an changing exhibition, which in both times when I have visited Kumu, has been excellent :-)

even if you do not find art interesting, Kumu is worth visiting for. The architecture is nice and the cafe serves snacks and beverages.

You'd better make half of the day for KUMU, as you'd probably like to have enough time to check out every exhibition they have (both Estonian art and special exhibitions). I loooved the building itself - a perfect example of contemporary architecture. In case you get tired strolling around the exhibition halls, you can always have a cup of coffee... More

As the first day was rainy, we visited the art museum. Good paintings and nice atmosphere in the whole building. Good variation of artists and a good mix. Absolutely a must in Tallin!

KUMU is not like the big art galleries in other capital cities. Here you see Estonian art and many interesting special exhibitions. The building itself is spacious and elegant and well worth a visit just for that. Knowledgeable English speaking guides make the visit most enjoyable and give an insight into the development of Estonian art.
