A bit biased as I had a chance to present some work here but this is a must see of Estonian art - both old and contemporary. Lots of great side-activities too - films series, places for children and a great outdoor space. Don't forget to recharge yourself in the ubiquitous Reval Cafe.

When in Tallinn, this is one of the most interesting sights. The building itself is really worth seeing, great architecture, airy and full of light. Also, the permanent display is interesting, focused on local artists and their work. Worth a visit, slightly outside of the center, though

Modern art museum with Estonian art from different decades. Interesting to see even though your not interested in art generally. Take time and explore things so you get much more out of it.

Kumu presents both permanent collections and temporary exhibitions. The main collection covers Estonian art from the 18th century onwards, including works from the occupations period (1940–1991) and showing both Socialist Realism and what was then Nonconformist art. Temporary exhibitions include both foreign and Estonian modern and contemporary art. Kumu received the prestigious European Museum of the Year Award of 2008... More

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.
