Kumu, or the Art Museum of Estonia, is a definite must for all your art and culture aficionados of you out there!
The building itself is an architecture marvel, its awesome, not sure when it was built and completed, but its a modern architectural treasure.
Spread over 5 floors, Kumu is a great place to spend a rainy day soaking up Estonian art and art from around the world.
Kumu is designed so as you go up the floors the art and collections get progressively more modern, starting with classic examples of Estonian art from the beginning of the 18th Century, slowly progressing up the floors until the End of the Second World War, and then more recent collections from the 1950’s – 1990’s, finally ending up with Kumu’s most recent exhibitions, usually from current practicing artists on the 5th floor. Basically there is something for everyone.
I’ve been to Kumu a number of times, I really love going, there is always something new I haven’t seen before, and I definitely recommend it.
Prices are Adults 6 €, Concessions 4 €, Family tickets 12 € for floors 1 to 4 and then the exhibitions of contemporary art (5th floor) are Adults 3 €, Concessions 2 €, and Family tickets 6 €.
United’s Top Tip: If you are lucky enough with your timing, try go to Kumu for their 1 euro Wednesdays, tickets to all exhibitions are 1 euro only!!
