The palace is set in a large and very pleasant green space with a formal gardens at the rear, which is free. We walked from the Old town and it took about 20 minutes, or you can catch tram #1 or 3. The palace has a couple of attractive rooms, but not a great deal of furniture. The rooms are... More

The site is more an art exhibition than a palace museum. There is a huge park around it though and beautiful garden as part of the palace. I would recommend this for couples without children, since there isn't much to do for them. On the other hand, the palace can be seen in about an hour so if your children... More

I suggest to visit this palace early morning, especially in summer, otherwise it will be really crowded and as the Palace rooms (some of them) are small, there will not be space to enjoy art! Nice paintings, good view to Palace garden!

The palace itself was easy to go to with a taxi (cheap way of transportation in Tallinn, use it) and it was very beautiful indeed. The park surrounding the palace is a great place for a stroll or a longer wandering. The great hall was spectacular and the whole palace displayed the art inside very gracefully. The collection at display... More

You should visit this museum for the ballroom alone, and perhaps the adjacent dining room. The art is not that interesting, but the castle itself is.

It's a spectacular old mansion surrounded by expansive grounds that are perfect for a stroll or a long walk, depending on your frame of mind. The entire location has been re-furbished and maintained and offers a glimpse of old world extravagance and beauty.

Be sure to take the tram to the palace. Grounds around the palace create a beautiful green space. Be sure to visit small tea shop and bakery you will find a couple block before the palace. It overlooks a lovely pond. The palace has a very interesting art exhibit.

Whatever you do in Tallinn, make sure you visit this palace. It stands in a magnificent park which is so large the palace itself is hard to find! Take the left hand avenue at the side of the park, and prepare to be amazed by the incredibly beautiful and colourful architecture. Our major disappointment was that we could not view... More

Easily accessible using public transportation, although expect to walk a bit due to the size of the grounds. If in Tallinn the palace is worth visiting although don't expect anything quite like palaces of larger countries such as France or Russia etc.
