Why locals love it

This giant museum resembles a supervillain's lair. If there's ever a nuclear apocalypse we know where we're heading! Simply exploring the building is an experience in itself. Inside you'll find galleries – lots of them.

Why you should visit it

While it's mainly Estonian works of art on display, the KUMU programme also regularly features events of a more international variety as well as fascinating workshops and lectures. The museum also hosts the annual “KUMU ÖÖ” – a mini festival of sorts where the building stays open all night as guests inside dance until sunrise.

Special tip

Kumu is open until 8 pm on Wednesdays – two hours longer than usual.

If you have time to visit one museum in Tallinn, definitely choose THIS one. In addition to great art, the space is also worth visiting for its architecture.
