We only walked in a park as it was so early that it wasn’t open yet. Impressive collection of Lenin and other Sovjet time statues behind the palace. Really nice buildings with different styles combined.

This is a very interesting and nice museum about recent (1900+) Estonian history. I did not have time to finish the main exposition because there is so much to see I plan to return and visit the museum of cinema and pop music.

The castle is nicer from outside than inside. The view from the entrance is to Tallinn Bay, this was lovely. The whole garden and area is a great place for a walk on a sunny day. It's small tho. We went to see the Eurovision...More

This museum provides an excellent introduction to Estonian history. I enjoyed the special exhibit for the centenary of Estonian independence. Don;t miss the sculpture garden in the back which provides a resting place for the torn-down Soviet monuments. Highly recommended.

After visting this museum I have an understanding of how Estonians struggled for their freedom. Occupied for so many years , this museum shows how that freedom was achieved, situated in the centre of old town this is a must visit.
