The same architect whom built the winter palace in St Petersburg for the Russian ruler Peter the great. It was a weekday when I went there were only less than 10 people there. Pleasant! Didn't bother renting an audio as there are cards on each corner explaining the painting, sculpture and displays. I did purchase a combo ticket with entrance... More

It was nice to go to the park, and we had a very nice lunch there, but though nice, this museum was not really that special.

As beautiful as the palace is the gardens are spectacular. I would recommend a guided tour as there is just so much history there. This is one of the attractions included if you get the Tallinn cards as well I would definitely recommend visiting in the summer.

Kadriorg palace is a wonderful place to visit for art and historical purposes. But around the palace there is also a big park that is nicely kept in order by a number of gardeners. I enjoyed the park more than the museum. There is sea near by, also some historical monuments. In the beginning of the summer and early autumn... More

Close to Kumu art museum in walking distance you will find Kadriorg palace and garden. Nice to visit to learn more about Russian influence and historical heritage. The palace itself is quite small but still nice. Recommend :)

Considering the fact that Estonia is a tiny country which has never had kings or queens of itself, the palace is fine. However, the art collection there is better than the palace. In addition, it has a very nice park surrounding it, so the best time to visit it is from early spring to late autumn.

This little palace with surrounding park is an absolute must to visit once in Tallinn. A little Versailles!

By European standards this is a very small palace. That said, it is ornate and beautiful. There is a lot of art of varying quality throughout. The building is not overly huge, so you will not risk someone getting bored halfway through. Also, the price for all sights in Estonia is so reasonable that it's a shame not to do... More

This palace was founded by Peter the Great. The building itself is quite stunning and the gardens surrounding the palace are just beautiful. If your in Tallinn make the effort to see it.
