I am kind of disappointed with this place. It is in a great condition and it has so many artifacts from even bronze age. Problem is that, there aren't any English explanation under the items they exhibit there, only Estonian and Russian. You can find some English explanation briefly on the posters on plates on the wall, and general info on the boards outside or on some brochures, not under the items shown. Considering that this castle and museum is maybe the biggest tourist attraction in this city and maybe in the island, it is just weird that they don't provide enough information in English. Also, I would have expected to see more medieval armor or weapon sets, tools and items reflecting the life and history of the castle but no. Otherwise, there are interesting stuffed animals section. Also, quite detailed exhibition from Soviet time. In a medieval castle, where you expect to see the history and importance of that very castle. If you speak Estonian or Russian of course. Another point; this castle is huge and it is like a maze. If you want to get a map, you need to pay for it. It is like 0.6 cents but this just feels like an opportunistic behaviour. I never had to pay for a map or a brochure of a castle here in Estonia before. Very interesting.

it's honestly one of the most interesting castle museums I've ever been to here in Baltics - you can spend easily hours there as there's many different exhibitions. On the top floor there's also cafe opened - good coffee!

Very large museum. Lots of exhibits. Everything is very nicely arranged. Really enjoyed it, only I was very tired of walking.The area is very beautiful. You can take a boat and swim around the castle.
