Photographer's Note

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.
