We have heard wo much about Kumu, but not until last week had the opportunity to visit the museum. You need enough time, at least 2-3 hours to see it all but it is worth it. Very interesting in all aspects, the arts, the architecture and the location in the Kadriorga park. Summer time might be the best time to... More

The lines of the building are quite pleasing. This museum is a good introduction to Estonian art. Coming across a significant artist, Nicolai Triik, was a revelation. Wonderful to see the museum used by many students.

This art gallery is fairly interesting, and contains a good, eclectic mix of Estonian art. The collection has a very broad style, with works dating from pre-1700 to modern works of art just a few years old. I think this gallery is definitely worth a visit if you are in Tallinn for a few days. They have exhibits and often... More

I usually steer clear of art museums but on this occasion I was pleasantly surprised by just how much I enjoyed the exhibits. They were engaging, thought-provoking and covered a vast range of interests. So enjoyed myself, I'd hardly noticed that almost 3hrs had passed before I realised I was hungry & needed to find somewhere to eat. Definitely a... More

We visited this museum as part of our day at Kadriorg Park. The building looked fascinating from outside. We were keen to see the Estonian art and we weren't disappointed. It seemed to follow a logical sequence and lifts made it easy to go between the floors and the different rooms. The cafe on the ground floor was excellent for... More

Located in the beautiful Kadriorg park is the main Estonian art gallery. It is the perfect size, so that you do not need the entire day to visit. It has wide collection of styles and surely should appease all art lovers. Check out the cafe for a french style light lunch.

Nice surroundings in Kadriorg park and easy to get from the centre with trams 1 and 3. Comprehensive exhibitions and just not too much but not too little to see.

We were looking forward greatly to visiting. Our guide book said it was closed on Monday only. We were told that also. Took a taxi there on Tuesday morning as it was a 30 min walk from the Old Town (taxi driver never queried this) only to find it was closed on Tuesdays also!! Very disappointing!
