We came to the Kumu art museum mainly to see their permanent exhibition of Estonian art, dating from the early 18th century until the end of the second world war. There is a lot of other exhibitions also, but this time we did not have time to look at them. But based on also earlier visits, we can recommend a... More

We visited for the first time the KUMU Museum. Both the exhibition and the building were very interesting. The building is designed by a Finnish architect Pekka Vapaavuori and it alone is worth seeing. The exhibition was also interesting.

This is relatively new building (2006) with a beautiful light, airy feel to the connecting spaces, without compromising the intimacy of the galleries. The "Hop On Hop Off" bus stops nearby and allows you to walk through the Kadriorg Gardens and visit the palace on your way. The collection isn't huge,but there are some nice pieces and a good focus... More

The building itself is worth a visit - and the collection and exhibits were excellent. Enjoyed the immensely interesting exhibit that explored Estonian artists' reactions to Soviet occupation from the 1940s-1991. Venture outside to walk in the magnificent gardens in the neighborhood that features other museums and palaces - great to be there even on a bone-chilling October day.

I'm glad we dropped in at the KUMU. When I travel I don't always visit museums if I am not familiar with the artists but I was really impressed by the actual building which is a piece of art. It took a little time to figure out the flow of the floors but once that was accomplished you could see... More

Impressive modern building within beautiful Kadriorg Park. I found the exhibition on Estonian Art of the Soviet era really interesting and it provided a useful historic background and context for other exhibitions I saw elsewhere in the Baltic States. At 6 Euros, the Gallery was more expensive than others I visited, but this included all exhibitions within the building.

The modernist museum building is a work of art in its own right and the perfect setting for the exhibits inside. The permanent exhibition comprises a comprehensive collection of Estonian art on the 3rd and 4th floors. Highly recommended!

In a word, WOW! At the edge of Kadriorg (Catherine’s) Park, look for a greenish crescent-shaped building. It is an architectural marvel in that the main corridor always curves, thus allowing exhibits/displays to be in separate “rooms” – without walls. Genius! There is far too much to describe, but each of the five (?) levels holds a wealth of priceless... More

Great inside and out, we loved the building g and its setting in the park. Then a great museum inside and a nice cafe too. Well worth a visit even if just for the structure.
