“Not Just Modern”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 21, 2012

Almost skipped this as we're not into modern art. Includes a very nice collection of art of all periods. Earlier works were note-worthy. The modern collection was not.

Great building at the end of traditional park . Some of the Art is soo modern that the artists have only just graduated!!
Good collection of Estonian art from 1800 to now . Very interssting to see how Communism influenced and was resisted by Artists

“Very good museum!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 17, 2012 via mobile

Located in a nice park, the building is beautiful and modern. The art collection is wonderful and surprising, covering several decades of Estonial art. The room of talking heads is a fantastic idea. Definitely a mast visit while in Thallin.

“An amazing museum and some quite nice paintings.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2012

This is a defiantly Estonian museum, which means that it is full of excellent work, that was (to put it charitably) strongly influenced by earlier European schools of painting.
Some of it carries some wonderfully weird and local twists, but much of it is derivative.
The best bit was a contemporary exhibition on light and darkness (The Speed of Dark). This had some wonderful and provocative pieces and a rather shoddy plastic and timber dome. Ignore the dome.
