Kumu Courtyard Map

tahvlist kevad-suvi 015 643

Come and get acquainted with the Kumu courtyard with the help of this special map. The courtyard is the perfect place for organising treasure hunts, as well as polishing your orientation skills. An architectural environment like this is hard to find anywhere else in Tallinn: stylistically angular but circular in form.

What all can we find here? The courtyard map will help you out!

For the summer, ping-pong tables are also set up in the Kumu courtyard, where everyone can play when the courtyard is open (Mon-Sun 8 am to 8 pm). You will find everything you need on site! In addition, there are art books in the small colourful courtyard libraries that you can browse through in the courtyard, or take home if you like.

The map introducing the Kumu courtyard as an architectural environment and the art works found therein has been prepared with the help of the architect Kadri Klementi (architectural bureau b210).

Discover the Kumu courtyard with an orienteering game!

The rules are simple. Just download the photos to your mobile, tablet or laptop OR ask for the orienteering game from the information desk. Find all the places in the courtyard where the photographs were taken, and mark them as accurately as possible on the map with a pencil or pen, which you can pick up at the main entrance. Or, you can ask the Kumu cashier for a pen. Also, don’t forget to mark the letter you find on the left side of the photo on the map!

Once you have found all of the places shown in the photos, connect the letters that you have marked on the map with straight lines in alphabetical order. Also, connect the first (A) and the last (L) letters. A familiar figure should be revealed to you on the map. If you’re sure about your find, bring it to the Kumu cashier and you’ll receive a small prize from the Kumu Art Museum!
