You can get very good view of Estonian art history and it`s main lines through the times. The 4th floor was new art. Could be more attractions around the museum.

The museum performs a new architecture, really interesting. High level exhibitions are changing often and you always have a new reason to visit there. The museum also has the restaurant of good quality.

I loved visiting Kumu. The architecture is astonishing and exhibits are really interesting. I didn't love the Beauty and Death exhibit that they had while I was there, but the rest were great. Loved learning about Estonian art.

KUMU is a great art gallery and the overall feel of the museum is wonderful. The building itself is full of light and is incredibly beautiful. Wandering through the exhibits is a great way to learn more about Estonia and see some fantastic artwork. The newest collection, Surm & Ilu (Death & Beauty) is extremely dark and gothic and definitely... More

The Kumu museum is located in a beautiful area of Tallinn, a short taxi/bus ride or pleasant walk away from the centre. It features interchanging and permanent collections; of the permanent ones the most interesting was the collection of Estonian art from the time of the Soviet regime, with its explanations about soviet realism.

the museum has interesting paintings, but don't expect anything more! the security forces people to leave the jacket, bag and bottle of water in a box! the women talk instead of working and the men are rude! there's a small shop, but nothing worthy to buy... i think the museum may be improved by hiring professional people who are polite...

The architecture is very inspiring and the art is well chosen- I´m sure the budget isn´t the largest possible- very good choices and well worth seeing. We really enjoyed our visit and would recommend this museum to others. It is small but it is well designed and interesting. The park around the museum is wonderful in the spring.
