  • KUMU in Kadriorg Park, built in 2006 by a Finnish architect, is a major art museum devoted to Estonian art. In the collections is art from the Soviet occupation of Estonia, both by Russians and Estonians, but most works of ester from the 1700 's to the present day. The Museum often show interesting solo and thematic exhibitions. In February 2017 rejoiced, I ate a nice exhibition on music in the art. Please note that it is possible to resolve a ticket for the three art museums.
