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.

The structure of the building itself was part of the attraction of this museum. It is a 7 story structure of limestone, glass and copper. You could spend the entire day at the museum because it is quite large and has both old and modern paintings and sculptures.

Anyone with an interest in the visual arts or architecture needs to put this on their list. The modern building is a triumph both in its cutting edge design, and the choice and quality of the materials chosen. I enjoyed particularly the area concentrating on art during the Soviet times. In each gallery there's a flyer giving an overall introduction... More

Appomixately 30 minutes walk from Viru plats, or few minutes by bur or tram + 5 minutes walk. Modern, yet relatively good looking building. Includes Estonian and Baltic art from 18th to 20th century. Also contemporary art exhibition. Exhibitions were mostly interesting, though I didn't feel any artistic peak experiences.

Great rooms, interesting local art. Top floor, modern art was very disappointing, really nothing there. Come on Mr Director, there must be artists today making stuff... Dont just put silly videos in 3 or 4 places.

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
