I visit many museums but rarely show "Pictures from the Exhibitions". But I liked the view of the group of children having lesson in Kumu in Tallinn. They seemed so interested in what they saw and I think that it is splendid idea to show the art to the kids.
Kumu is very interesting place, both the paintings and the building itself. I visited some other museums in tallinn and the display was always made in interesting way, I had great fun there.
Kumu (Estonian: Kumu Kunstimuuseum) is an art museum in Tallinn, Estonia. The museum is the largest one in the Baltics and one of the largest art museums in Northern Europe.
Kumu presents both permanent collections and temporary exhibitions. The main collection covers Estonian art from the 18th century onwards, including works from the occupations period (1940–1991) and showing both Socialist Realism and Nonconformist art. Temporary exhibitions include both foreign and Estonian modern and contemporary art.
Kumu is an abbreviation of the Estonian "Kunstimuuseum" (art museum). The designer was a Finnish architect, Pekka Vapaavuori, who won the competition in 1994. It was constructed from 2003 to 2006. The building is successfully positioned in the limestone slope of Lasnamäe Hill, and therefore, despite its size, is in harmony with the intimacy of the ancient Kadriorg Park.
Kumu received European Museum of the Year Award 2008 by European Museum Forum.

Good Morning Malgo,
I have never before seen a square photograph which created such an impression of a triangle. It is amazing.
Like you, I love to see children exposed to art. Hopefully, it will capture their imagination and inspire them.
Your viewpoint is great at funnelling attention from the f/g to the children, in a most natural way, with lots of art to view along the way.
My warm regards,

You found a good POV here to catch the audience a bit "von oben". The children seem to concentrate on the sculptures, not watching the paintings at all. A nice triangular composition with a lot of life and activity.

You had a great idea for a composition and the result is very good. There is a lot to watch and the triangle makes the view very attractive. This is a perfect way to take pictures in a museum or gallery. The interest shown by the kids makes this very interesting to us too. I won't complain about anything in such a fine photo, but it would have been even better without the woman and things seen at the bottom.

C'est une des choses que j'apprécie le plus lors de mes voyages en Europe. Tous ces enfants qui visitent les musées ainsi que les petits tests qu'ils ont à passer après.On devrait faire la même chose au Canada.

sono daccordo con te, bisogna mostrare l'arte hai bambini, spiagandola con parole semplici e iniziando da cose semplici. Io ho sempre portato i miei figli in musei e mostre e ho sempre trovato riscontro positivo, ancora oggi che sono grandi e possono fare come vogliono.
Questa tua foto è molto bella, sia per ciò che ho detto sui bambini, sia per la parte strettamente tecnica e visiva, hai sfruttato al meglio il pov.

I love these elevated types of perspectives, always a unique view of what's happening down below at eye level. With my favorite color being blue, my eyes went directly to the lady in the bottom left corner of the frame...well, there's that...and the fact it's a lady! :)
Super composition here, I love how you've utilized the large triangular shape of the floor in conjunction with the many works of art and their subsequent shapes adorning the walls...all while looking downwards. So glad that you included the group of school children to liven things up, which I'm sure they did all throughout the museum! lol
Well lit and balanced, a fine indoor shot...which is pretty much always a tricky thing to accomplish with the artificial lights. Hope you're having a great time. Travel safe.

Hope you were listening and not disruptive, or out of the museum room and stand by the naughty door, ha ha.
Love your angle you have captured this, super to see all the children so interested in this Art and Sculptures, apart from the wandering boy.
Nice one, looks a great place.

una bella scenetta che offre un inconsueto colpo d'occhio sul museo e nello stesso tempo offre una bella scena di vita quotidiana.
I colori sono molto gradevoli e nello stesso tempo è assai piacevole la composizione.
Ciao e buona giornata.

Hi Malgorzata, Nice view from above with excellent POV which creates a triangle shape in this image. Well recorded moment of these children whom are enveloped by all those classy paintings and sculptures. Nice light and tones along with great scale of height. Thank for sharing
