The Kumu Art Museum is located on the limestone clint between Kadriorg Park and the Lasnamäe district. The museum has two entrances: one on the Kadriorg Park side and the other on the Lasnamäe side. When you approach from the Kadriorg side, a curving ramp takes you to the first floor of Kumu, where the café and the auditorium are located. Doors in Kumu do not open automatically but have to be pulled outward by meander-shaped handles.
The front desk and the cloakroom are located on the second floor. To reach that area, you need to take a slightly curving ramp directly upwards from the entrance. The ramp is about thirty metres long.
When you come from the Lasnamäe side, you will enter the museum though the courtyard, the stairs and ramps of which lead to the main entrance. The main entrance opens to the atrium on the second floor of Kumu. Straight ahead, you will find a model of the museum and the front desk, and to the left is the museum shop. The cloakroom is located behind the front desk. To the left of the cloakroom is the Kumu Education Centre, lockers and a men’s toilet; to the right, there are more lockers and a women’s toilet. The great exhibition hall of Kumu is to the right of the main entrance.
Free parking is available next to the museum in Valge Street and in Mäekalda Street.
