If you like art and history, this museum is a must! The building itself is modern and clean. The art exhibits were diverse, spanning from the USSR era to more recent times. I participated in a group activity which lasted 3 hours. The Team Art digital installation was phenomenal! It feels like you are immersed in an ocean, a garden, and standing around a campfire. If you've been to the Van Gogh digital art experience, it is very similar to that. I recommend partaking in the activities they offer if you have the time. The cafe is also very quaint with wonderful food and coffee options.

This museum is housed in a wonderful purpose-built space designed by a Finnish architect. The art chronicles modern art through the tortured history of Estonia, from brief independence, through occupation by the Soviets, then the Nazis, then the Soviets again, and finally independence again. Each change generated a dramatic shift in what "art" was acceptable. Now independent again, they make no secret of their sympathies in the Ukraine-Russia war, as they fear another occupation by Russia.

Yes, I know art is in the eye of the beholder and I'm saying that made our group so uncomfortable with distaste for genitalia stuff that we left the floor to see something else. It was offensive. Rest of the museum was good and we paused for lunch in the cafe.

This museum was opened in 2006. The modern building is designed by a Finnish architect Pekka Vapaavuori. This was our second visit after April 2006.

Two days before our visit, we bought online tickets for the three Kadriorg museums (Kumu, Kadriorg, and Mikkel) for 22 euros (normal rate) and 16 euros (senior rate). There were problems delivering the tickets but it was solved after two emails.

Luckily, this ticket is valid for one year because we did have time to visit just Kumu on this trip. There was so much to see.

The permanent exhibitions feature Estonian art from the 18th century, art from the Soviet occupation (1941–1991), and Estonian contemporary art.

There are also temporary exhibitions of both historical and contemporary art from Estonia and abroad.

I must say right away, Kumu is a great museum! But how disgusting and shameful it is to make such expensive tickets!! 12€ for an regular ticket for an adult is almost a mockery of the very idea of enlightenment, which should be the purpose of the existence of any museum. It is all the more shameful that the museum presents magnificent works of Estonian art. Probably it is the popularization of the Estonian cultural heritage that contradicts the ideas of those people who make such high prices for museum visits possible.
At the same time, coming to London you will be able to visit the most important museums absolutely for free! In Warsaw, a number of museums are available for free every day of the week. And as a result, in a week you will be able to visit almost all the main places.
Alas, in Estonia, just coming to the museum (without benefits and special discount cards) turned out to be an expensive pleasure. It's hardly worth being proud of.

This museum houses Estonian art including some contemporary artists and installations. Exhibits are very well presented together with documentary footage.

Great art exhibition with focus on Estonia, Russain and contemporary pieces. Stunning building. 30-45 minuts walk from city center / ferry harbour. In a beautiful area close the President Residence.

Very interesting museum and architecture of the building. I spent several hours here, discovering lots of Estonian art that I had never heard of. Through the art you also learn a bit about the country's history and people's way of life. I especially liked the part about the Soviet period, and would recommend to start with that.

We visited the Kumu Art Museum during our stay in Tallin. It was an interesting experience with a lot of exhibits of different artists and also an exhibition of Estonian history.
There is also a cafe inside where you eat or enjoy your coffee.

Very modern building and that is part of this gallery's charm. Some people like modern art, some people do not; however, their collection of 20th century Latvian and Soviet art is very extensive and worth seeing even if the 20th century is not your favorite period of art.
