Kumu Art Museum is magnificent: it´s for pure art! I´m sure everyone gonna find some really moving art in Kumu. For me the most important part was Estonian history, time under Soviet Union. Under pressure artist made socialism realism art. It´s terrible but really good evidence of Soviet Union's decay. The story have happy end: Estonian found way to freedom... More

I was impressed with a few pieces in the Treasury, which has the older collection. For example, the floor-length 1887 Monks' Imprecation of Lorelei - in the last room- is stunning. The video stories of those who escaped Siberia- in the conflicts gallery- is riveting. The rest is cruddy modern art that I zoomed over.

The art museum is housed in a very elegant and conteporary building. The top floor is devoted to (very) Contemporary art, the forth floor to art of the Soviet era, and the third to pre-soviet art. Buy a combination ticket for this, the Kadrious Palace and the Mikkel museums. There's also a Peter l museum. Kadrioru Park, where the museums... More

There is a lovely walk through the park to reach the gallery on the other side of the town. I would certainly recommend if you are staying in Tallinn for more than a few days. There are 3 floors of art and it takes around 2 hours to go around the gallery at a glance and much longer if you... More

Start at the top of the building and work your way down to the ground floor. What's odd are the doors that you have to go through to get into the main entrance for each floor. Great collection and it was wonderful to walk through an art museum that didn't have hoards of crowds. Enjoy the space.

'onward to the future' The building and the collection are modern, design, diverse, daring, breathtaking, sometimes funny, often uneasy impressive!

It is an amazing Museum. The organization of the space is amazing, how the exposition takes you from one room to the next one, how you flow. The permanent collection is really good (the heads room is amazing). We also enjoyed a lot the exposition on soviet art in Estonia and loved the tenporary exhibition on victorian clothes. The bulding,... More

Went on a rainy Tuesday. The walk there is quite interesting in a nice park. The museum's architecture is impressive from outside. They have free lockers. The temporary exhibit on Victorian fashion was quite interesting. As a regular visitor of many European art museums, the permanent collection did not stand out. I would have liked to see more descriptions contextualizing... More

Upon arriving at the staircase, we heard strange truck noise or sound of moving huge things, but we realised it was from the speakers, which we found very amusing. the art installations are on display everywhere in and surrounding the museum area. Such deliberate attempt to provide visitors a full enjoyment of art is highly appreciated. I love the contemporary... More
