  • The KuMu Artmuseum is very beautiful, especially the building and the light spoke to us. The paintings are mainly of Estonian artists, so quite unknown. The room with busts was very impressive. There was a temporary exhibition of Paul Delvaux, a Belgian painter. A visit to the building alone is worth it, if you like modern architecture.
