Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

I had seen this was a place to check out when in Tallinn and I thought the building looked neat so when in Tallinn I decided to check it out. I was not sure if I wanted to just take photos of the outside and go in and check out the art but when I got there I figured why not go inside also. I'm not really a art person but for 9 euros I think you get your moneys worth. I enjoyed checking out the art amazing how old some were back to 1600's. So I recommend this place for some cool photos when in Tallinn but even if you are not an art person like me go inside I dont think you will be disappointed.

The Information Lady was very helpful, motivated me to buy Combo Ticket that allows access to 3 museums: Kadriog Palace/Museum, KUMU and Miikkell.

This museum has several floors of exhibits ranging from paintings of royalties and landscapes, porcelains, vases, plates, figurines, ornate ceilings and walls of one room, etc. Note that there are FREE lockers here for one’s use.

Note: During my visit there are several buses of tourists oggling for the best spots to take pictures of this former Palace. Be patient, wait until they leave before taking pictures of this attraction.

Nice palace with different art. Not that big but beautiful
If you plan to do a lot of museum etc. I would recommend the Tallinn card which makes it at lot more affordable.

After getting quite a bit impressed by the "lower garden" (a fair-sized rectangular lawn with colorful flowers around its boundaries & also a pond of the same shape right alongside the length of the garden), it was just about a 5-minute walk to the Palace where it was kind of a disappointment upon arrival at the Palace for its closure (due to being a Monday) but where I was still "quite awed" just by the beautiful exterior of the building with also noticing these small "facial impressions" of Queen Catherine the Great (really quite a number of them all around the Palace just to look up slightly above), and finally after going up the steps beside the Palace was arriving at the "upper garden" which is something I would just describe as a "jaw-dropping beauty" (without exaggeration for its "really plentiful" number of flower beds arranged in some interesting patterns and where actually there's also "like a symmetry" between the two halves of the garden with pretty much identical flower patterns in each half, and yes also a great photo-op with the "amazing beauty" of both the garden & the back-facade of the Palace).

If coming from the Old Town (like I did), it's about a 30-minute walk pretty much just a "straight way" from the Old Town's entrance all the way to the Kadriorg Park (except where the street branches into two shortly before the park entrance which is reached by taking the "right way" lined with trees on both sides) followed by just a few-minute further walk also along another tree-lined way from the park entrance to the "lower garden", and yes in that park (which likely is a "pretty sizeable" one) apart from these two gardens & the Palace are also wooded areas & such for plenty of leisure walk I would say.

You should visit it. It's not very far. It's not one of a kind but it's a palace with history behind. If you are there in summer you can even sit under the sun and have a picnic.

This Baroque palace was founded by Tsar Peter I of Russia in 1718. It was named Kadriorg in honor of his wife Catherine I. The richly decorated main hall is especially stunning.

The palace is surrounded by an imposing Versailles-like garden with fountains, fences, and flower plantings.

Today, the palace houses the Kadriorg Art Museum which presents Western European and Russian art from the 16th to the 20th centuries.

I was here for a yoga class from the Embassy of India for the World Yoga Day. Even though it was a bit rainy I enjoyed the yoga class and the walk around the park! We had an amazing one hour class with assanas, stretching and breathing excercises! It was an hour of learning and relaxation for the body!! Thank you to the embassy and to the amazingly lovely park! The park is so beautiful!! It had fountains everywhere and places for picnics, one area for children to play and machines to enjoy!

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.
