Maarjamäe Palace - Estonian History Museum

Add to Favourites Your favourite!

The Estonian History Museum’s Maarjamäe Palace opened its doors for Estonia’s 100th birthday as an entertaining history centre. 

The historic palace, situated next to the Pirita Promenade, has been renovated, and the summer hall and café have been given a fresh look. A beautiful view across the Tallinn Bay opens up from the palace’s proud tower.

Maarjamäe Palace prepared a grand exhibition “My Free Country [Minu Vaba Riik]” for the 100th anniversary of the Estonian Republic. The exhibition, covering 100 years, takes visitors to the modern day, giving them the opportunity to explore and discuss both the past and the future. Children can build their own country in the “Children’s Republic” game.

In the summer hall there is exposition introducing visitors to the colourful and exciting history of Russian Count Orlov-Davidov’s summer manor (founded in 1874).

An outdoor exhibition has also been created in the Maarjamäe Palace Park. The exhibition “Memory” assembles Soviet-era monuments and sculptures for the purpose of giving the monuments a new, neutral context, to help access the history of the totalitarian state and sense the ideological foundations and methods of Soviet society.

Located in the Maarjamäe Palace complex is the recently opened Estonian Film Museum, exciting outdoor exhibitions, relaxation areas and a children’s playground.      

Entrance is free with Tallinn Card.
