  • Great museum, the selection of artworks is very varied and there is something for everyone. The building is also amazing, adds to the experience of the visit.
  • Good museum, the art covers all eras of Estonian painting. Some modern expositions are really weird and that's part of art too. So go and see for yourself. But be ready to spend around 2 hours in there.
  • 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟 Amazing Galerie with lots of history, permanent exhibitions and Temporary ones! I really Like, it is big and I can explore the whole day… and I'll get a good overview in a few hours. The arts and paintings feel very close, reachable and the atmosphere is peaceful. The gift shop is Super cute
  • Massive art museum. You can spend hours and hours here. Lovely architecture
  • So uhm... What's with the modern art? I mean, since when planting a tree in your mouth is art? Did I miss a step in degradation? Anyways, the first floor was good, I liked it :)
