  • If you haven't been, I would thoroughly recommend Kumu art museum in Tallinn certainly the best art museum in the region and a lovely architectural design. They have a stunning art collection, especially on the classic paintings, but also on the pop art and Soviet era. They also have a contemporary section on the top floor which also has a stunning view of the park. They also have a very nice terrace for watching people and enjoying the sun with a good cup of coffee
  • It's always interesting to come here. Exhibitions vary quite a bit and the whole building is a pleasant area to walk around. You can really choose where to go for yourself and everything is connected by elevators or stairs.
  • It's a beautiful building inside and out.
  • modern, baeutiful, must have to visit while staying in Tallinn
  • Modern (10 years old) art museum. Always interesting exhibitions.
