  • 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?🤔😈
