All I wished for was more time here. I had barely two hours, and that's not enough. If you're even halfway interested in art, allow more time. I was totally impressed by what I saw - lots of works of art perhaps unknown in other corners of the Earth - but they did bring me closer to Estonia.

Stunning building and lovely collection in a beautiful park. Well worth the trip. We cycled there from the old town on hired bikes and also took in the Other galleries in the park.

Best place to visit when you are art lover. It's full of inspiration. There's classical art pieces and modern expositions. Love this place.

A very interesting museum, worth spending a whole day there if you can afford it. The exhibitions of paintings starting with the 18th century on the lower floor get weirder and weirder with each floor as it gets more modern. Don't miss a hall, there are gems in every one.The exhibitions on the upper floor are temporary and change quite... More

in Helsinki, but not in the center of town. The location is in Kadriorg, not far from the President's Palace. Different expositions from different periods, old and modern art. Designed by a Finnish architect. There's a small cafe inside. Sometimes it's hard to find a parking place in the lower parking area, the upper parking area is bigger.

We were driven in on a whim, and thought "why not, it seems interesting enough." And we were right about that! Not only was the architecture of the building itself very interesting, but the art itself was also thought-provoking. Of course, the works weren't by Monet or Michelangelo, but all big names have once started small, right? The different areas... More

A family visit, mostly for modern art. Impressive architecture and the entrance to the building is worth a visit by itself. Modern art collections on display were ok. Allow two to four ours.

I spent a whole afternoon here. The only thing I wish they had was an audio guide in English. The paintings and artwork had English translation on their labels, which was so helpful. The collections cover Estonian art from the 18th century onwards, including works from the Soviet occupations period (1940–1991) and artwork showing both Socialist Realism and what was... More

It's not a typical European museums with renowned Artists' works, no Picasso, no Monet, but that's what makes this museum interesting. The Estonia artworks are somehow different. We enjoy the visit a lot ( the contemporary art on the 5th floor is comparatively less exciting). We also had lunch at the museum cafe, and witnessed the change of weather: sunny,... More

I thought this building was the contemporart Art museum, and certainly the top two floors covered modern art. It is a building to meander through and is in a great setting at the top of the park. It is a must for lovers of modern architecture.
