Since this museum concentrates on Estonian art, it limits itself quite a bit, and most of the pieces didn't please me, but there was quite some nice homoerotic art and the fantastic self portrait of Herbert Lukk, the artist who died so young.

Unique architecture to start with, the exhibitions do change, so find out what is on show before you go. If you are interested in art and are in Tallin - KUMU is not to be missed.

Please, just visit KUMU one by one. It is much too big to handle in one day so it is worth to deal in pieces. Building is really fine and I love wooden stairs. All exhipitions are professionally planned and very fine.

Never sure why we go in art galleries as we don't get half of what's on display but it's interesting. This is a very interesting building with a good cafe

We were impressed with the selection of art. We like the 19th & 20th century artwork much more than modern art (we usually avoid modern art museums) and they had a good amount of both, so whether you like one or the other (or both), this is a good museum to visit. Just pay attention to the opening time -... More

Definitely worth visiting the museum when you visit Kadriorg Park. It is a fair walk from the centre of town so you may want to take public transport to get there. Beautiful art gallery. There is a lovely Reval cafe there. I suggest the duck borscht.

This is well worth a half-day visit, although it's a fair distance from central Tallinn, a thirty minute walk or take the tram. The modern curving building is visually arresting. The collection is displayed chronologically, with 19th/early 20th century art on the 3rd floor, then post-WW2 works on the 4th. The latter period covers the period of Soviet control. The... More

Modern art, i.e.lots from 19th century, part dedicated to 20th century, but not much of contemporary art if not for special exhibits.
