Kumu National Art Museum is the largest exhibition hall in Estonia and the whole Baltics, and one of the largest in the whole of Northern Europe.

In 2008 Kumu Museum received the title “European Museum of the Year”. This means that the museum, in addition to the exhibition area, is a platform for educational and outreach activities.

The museum name is an abbreviation of the Estonian “Kunsti Muuseum”, which means “art museum”.

Exhibitions

On the different floors of the museum are exhibits from different times. On the first floor there are classrooms used for various events and seminars, and a cafeteria. The second floor is occupied by administrative offices, where visitors can also find an information desk, checkroom and restrooms. Also on the second floor are classrooms and a large conference room, a library section and bookstore, a restaurant and access to the terrace.

The main part of the museum is the third, fourth and fifth floors. On the third floor are exhibits from the eighteenth century to the beginning of World War II; on the fourth floor are exhibits from the Soviet period. The fifth floor is occupied by the modern art collection, with the Estonian collection alternating with the international one.

Gold Fund

The museum’s permanent collection is called the “Gold Fund”, and it consists of works that date from the early ⅩⅤⅠⅠⅠ to the end of the Second World War – classics of Estonian art.

Very interesting and unusual is the installation of busts of people from different eras who have left their mark on Estonian history, some of which are talking busts. Visitors can see paintings by unknown artists as well as works by famous artists such as Johan Köhler, Kristjan Raud and Konrad Mägi. The works of art are arranged in such a way as to show visitors, step by step, the history and culture of Estonia.

Conflicts and Adaptations. Estonian Art of the Soviet Period (1940-1991)

The second permanent exhibition focuses on the second half of the ⅩⅩ century. Here in the exhibits one can catch the ambiguous attitude towards this period in history – from the struggle against the regime, to its support. The exhibition is complemented by archival documents – photographs, letters, films that immerse visitors in the past and help them better understand and feel the artists.

Estonian art from the Soviet era.

The exhibition consists of several halls, each of which is an independent and separate part, but together they form a whole.

Educational programs

Kumu is not only a museum, but also an educational center. Both individual lessons and cycles of classes are arranged for children of all ages to help children immerse themselves in art. All lessons are interactive sessions, not boring lectures. They are divided into sections based on age. The cost per lesson is 4,5 € per person if the group exceeds 10 children, and 45 € per lesson for a group of up to 9 pupils. Camps and entertainment programs for children are organized during the vacations.
