Art Walk. Treasury
Drop-in guided tours in English
The Kumu Art Museum offers you a great opportunity to spend your leisure time in a vibrant artistic space. On the last Sunday of every month, we offer a special drop-in guided tour that will introduce one of our latest exhibitions. Through our museum mediators, you can gain deeper insight into art and history.
The rooms of permanent exhibition “Treasury. Classics of Estonian Art from the Beginning of the 18th Century until the End of the Second World War” are filled with the early classics of Estonian art from the 18th century until the end of the Second World War. As the exhibition moves from one topic to another – from a work of an anonymous Baltic-German portrait artist to Johann Köler, Kristjan Raud and Konrad Mägi, and on to the Group of Estonian Artists, Pallas School – a visitor can also detect cultural processes characteristic to Western Europe. The exhibition tracks down changes in the Estonian mentality as well as in art styles. It consists of both masterpieces that already have established a place in the collective memory of Estonians and works that have until now been waiting in the depositories to be displayed.
