Most tourists only visit the old town part of Tallinn, but just a few minute taxi ride out of the old town, you have this wonderful art museum located in a beautiful suburban part of the city. Kumu...
Very nice museum, not too large. Very interesting building, good views. Different exhibitions, well prepared, good museum-shop and good coffee.
Visit Kadrioru Park and KUMU on the same day, KUMU is right next to the park. The building is new and the art inside is defenetly worth a visit.
