Museo che merita la visita. Struttura molto bella a livello architettonico. Collezioni interessanti. Da non perdere. more »Museum that deserves a visit. Very beautiful structure on an architectural level. Interesting collections. Don't miss it.
Solid art museum with lots of different styles. Certainly one of the best attractions that Tallinn has to offer. There are a lot of guided tours, which can be nice if you want to hear more about the permanent exhibitions.
Exposition of Tommy Cash and Rick Owens was a breath of fresh air after three floors of high art. Museum is modern, has all required facilities. Special attention should be payed on the signs on the fourth floor doors. I only wonder, if someone tried?🤔😈
