Opened to rave reviews in 2006, this futuristic, Finnish-designed, seven-storey building is a spectacular structure of limestone, glass and copper, nicely integrated into the landscape. Kumu (the name is short for kunstimuuseum or art museum) contains the largest repository of Estonian art as well as constantly changing contemporary exhibits. The permanent collection is split into ‘Treasury’ (on the 3rd floor, featuring works from the beginning of the 18th century until the end of WWII) and ‘Difficult Choices’ (on the 4th floor, showcasing art during the Soviet era). Current and cutting-edge exhibitions fill the 5th floor. The complex is wheelchair accessible and houses an excellent shop and cafe.
