  • Conveniently located exhibition: every floor separate epoch-3 storey classic 18-19th, next on 4 floor of the art of the first Republic, on 5-m from the Soviet era to the present day. Very interesting stuff in there! Not saturated and very understandable. About sculpted head, unfortunately, information leaf not found in Russian, remained fascinated, but Lenin didn't have learned. A pity, because portraits were very very expressive! EA 2-m cloakroom, toilets and souvenirs, on 1-m Cafe. Stated as the most modern building, taking into account the needs of persons with disabilities. By car drive extremely uncomfortable, confused road detour road, at the crossroads there is no turns, one-way traffic. Finally parking: the building itself, it is the pit vkopano Hill, at the bottom of which buried five-storey building, with the road sticks out only a roof, so look for eyes and orientirovat'sch on high-rise building useless, generally not visible! From the parking lot to go to the other side of the road to the elevator, and elevator rides solely on the 3-rd floor, not in the building, and on the concrete Plaza in front of the entrance. So from the elevator on the stroller must roll over serpentine yet with half a kilometer to entrance through the 2-nd floor. Further, the truth is, it's easier, lifts with each floor through all exposure. But back! now I need to go from the entrance to the elevator on the same serpentine on the stroller, but it's already up! Ranked from ...

  • Kumu Museum itself is housed in a very pleasant, modern and unusual architecture. On the top floor of a modern art exhibition. Better even to say-the maverick art. An empty wall, on which hangs the picture with a bouquet. And suddenly the picture begins. rotate. Through several rooms you guess why this happens:)

  • I had visited the kolistelemassa in the KUMU door twice to no avail, at the wrong time, then, but for now, I made my way to get there. Majailin Lasnamäe in early 2005 and is within walking distance was a couple of kilometers. The place is really a positive experience. The first stone of the courtyard the sculptures that made us stop and think. It was a sunny frosty winter day, which lit up the them. Very large, palvelevaisia, and mukavanoloisia info ladies. When the route takes the floors of the hotel, one can only wonder why does not get lost. The building is designed to be somehow "logically" rather than the familiar apuamissämäoon-feeling. I'm going to go soon, but these were päälimmäisinä to mind: the strength of the Council of the arts, the statues of which there are many and that stunning. Music-related installations such as water wall with a kuohuihin looking liimaantuu and for some reason, to me your favorite book. The book room was black and there was a set of small books (maybe the hymn books?) open for about half a mile apart horizontally. Light pegs were placed in a calm but the fan from the ceiling by hand käänteli pages. Quiet music playing. This was one of the magical ... The store's prices were a staggering, but the Café Koer-pikkuleivoksen got tea and Kirju out of a total of just over 2. I'll go again definitely research trip! I would have thought that a kind of hunger. The fifth floor still without seeing the books. Ratikallakin, I think it was a 3 a decent amount.
