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.

We were at the KUMU Art Museum on Monday which the museum was closed. However we walked the whole ground from lower to upper level and found many interesting art pieces spreading throughout. There was an audio sound through the ramp which had sound of a passing wagon. The architecture of the museum itself was quite unique. Wish we were... More

This contemporary building was architecturally brilliant, located in a beautiful park and housed an unexpected range of exhibitions. The installation of portrait busts was beautiful and eerie and the 19th century costume exhibit that was on view in August was magnificent; well curated and informative. The Estonian collections yielded some fine works. Best of all was the restaurant - better... More

We visited this museum as a side dish to our visit to Kadriorg (combined ticket for three museums, 18 euro for a family). We were positively surprised. The top floor is modern art, nothing to see there. The 3rd floor hosts a nice exhibition of 20th century local art of the soviet period, it shows some nice examples of old... More

The MUKU museum is an archtectural jewel, well situated in the Kadriorg park, close to the Kadriorg Palace. The collections highlight Estonian art in different time periods. Interesting is the section of modern art as well as the art from the period of the Russian revolution. Must see for art lovers from all over the world.

We visited Kumu on our two-day trip to Tallinn, we wanted to see the exhibition on socialism-era modern art, but checked also the exhibition on modern media art and Victorian age clothing. Kumu is easily reach with trams and is close to Kadriorg park. Its great option for spending a rainy day.

A really interesting and well put together museum. It was particularly great in conveying life and art in Estonia under Soviet occupation. The building is beautifully designed and the surroundings are lovely.
