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.

Thank you for visiting us! Hopefully next time the museums will be opened also. There is much to see inside :) From May till September we are opened every day 10.00 - 18.00.
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

Thank you for your comment. In Maarjamäe Palace one can find "The Childrens Republic" which is a playful learning environment designed for children aged 5 to 12.
The hole area with museums is worth of visit speacilly for families with young kids. Kids can play outdoor, plenty to explore at the museums and the restaurant is ok too in the main building but there is also possibility to eat your own food...More
10 minutes from the city centre, on the hill with a wonderful sea view. The whole manor complex is very well renovated. There are 3 exhibitions: in the mansion - Estonian history, in the old stable - Estonian film history and the third gives you...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.
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.
Interesting museum in the capital, Tallinn with focus on telling the history of modern Estonia. Interesting objects and with a modern display. Focus is on Estonia’s modern and dramatic history from the period from imperial Russia to independence and then back to Russia/USSR and finally...More
