The building itself is a work of modern architecture as are the grounds and sculpture garden. The galleries hold a great collection and changing exhibits. There is a large collection so you need time to visit. It is located on the old royal grounds away from downtown. They also have a good cafe for lunch and coffees.

This is good for adults but for families I would recommend Miia Milla Manda museum near in Kadriorg Park. I kind of expected something to do too, maybe little more innovative. But of course there were some really great paintings and artwork I really enjoyed. The Estonian art at soviet era was definitely one of my favorites.

It is a very excellent art museum. The standing or permanent exhibition gives a very comprehensive overview of estonian art through different periods of Estonian history. You see the changes walking from one exhibition hall to another from one time period to the other. It also stages different temporary exhibitions that are very good choices. The museum aslo funktions as... More

Kumu is a place definitely worth visiting for while being in Tallinn. Great exhibitions, something for everyone. Some modern art and some classic art. Also friendly service from the staff and the museum itself was nicely desinged. Rather easily accessible by tram from the city centre. Also Kadriorg palace is quite nearby and it can be a nice additional place... More

The architecture of the building is unique. During our visit the installations were really memorable and evoked strong feelings. A must-see during your visit in Tallinn.

I loved the varied art displays. The tyre chair. And the videos of the experiences of people over the years that suffered with regard to the historical politics and wars.

The museum contains a varied collection of Estonian art reflecting the major periods of Estonian history. Of particular interest is the art from the Soviet era in which you sense the repression suffered during that time. The sculpture hall contained one of the most unique displays of busts that I have ever seen. The presentation itself is worth seeing. The... More
