Beautiful gardens
Aug 2020
We had a lovely afternoon strolling in the sunshine looking at the lovely gardens- particularly nice was the Japanese gardens with Koi carp ponds and red squirrels.

Great building and park, OK collection
Jul 2020
The building itself has been tastefully renovated, and the main hall is stunning. The art collection on the other hand is interesting, but not 'wow'.

Interesting but not spectacular
Jul 2019
We visited Kadriorg Palace since we already had a Tallinn card (so entry was included) and we were continuing on to Pirita Monastery. Probably wouldn’t have bothered otherwise. It was easy to get to the Palace by tram although there wasn’t a lot of signage at the tram stop to point us in the right direction but if you follow the crowd you won’t go wrong. The Palace looks attractive from the outside but the art collections inside are fairly modest. Overall a bit of an underwhelming experience but considering we had just come from St Petersburg, most places would fade into insignificance compared to the great palaces there.

Lovely palace
Mar 2020 • Friends
Lovely palace with mainly art work but not a lot more to see. You need to leave your jacket and large bag at lockers. Garden would be lovely in summer. Easy to reach using tram from just outside the old town. Takes 10 minutes then a 10 minute walk through the park. Tram costs 2euros for an hour journey- just place money into receptacle at driver cabin and he gives you a ticket.

Another great European styled palace with fantastic gardens surrounding it. Well worth a visit to admire how the wealthy lived in the past.

Russia in Estonia

We took the tram (line 3; cheap tickets available via an app) out to Kadriorg park and wandered for more or less a day. Took in this small but fantastically restored palace. Lots of art and history on display but the hall itself is stunning. Garden was lovely despite the time of year and inclement weather.

I'd recommend getting the combined ticket for this, Mikkel and Kumu rather than individual tickets.

A little piece of classical Russia in Estonia
Nov 2019
If you'd like to see a little piece of Tsarist Russian and don't want to battle the perpetual crowds in St Petersburg (yet), then the Kadriorg Palace is a good place to start. While it doesn't replace the sheer splendour of the Hermitage, it might whet your appetite a little. Built by Peter the Great as a summer 'cottage'(!) for Catherine, it does give a hint of the splendours awaiting a visit across the border. A beautiful and compact museum containing some impressive art works, furniture and interiors. Because it's small, it's easy to see in around an hour, so perfect for families with smaller kids, or simply if you don't feel like spending all day on your feet. There are stairs to climb inside the museum, so if you've issues with mobility this might be a challenge.

A famous beautifully restored palace and superb gardens
Jul 2019
You can reach Kadriorg Palace by public transport and enjoy the beautifully restored palace that was built when Estonia was part of Russia. The gardens are cool even in summer and the flowers are beautifully landscaped, planted and maintained.

Small but enjoyable art collection a Bijou Palace of Tsar Peter the Great
Oct 2019 • Couples
We happened to come when the exhibition was focused on the Dannebrog, so quite a lot of Danish paintings from nineteenth century by some very good artists, as well as some Estonian art, also very good. The main hall (accessed as part of the paid visit to the collection) was as grand as the guide books say. We had excellent coffee and cake in the tiny café there, a bit pricey by Tallinn standards but worth it
