About
Building of the Paide Order Castle started in 1265. Local white limestone was used to build the castle. The first building on Vallimagi Hill was the octagonal Tall Hermann Tower, which was destroyed by the retreating Red Army in 1941. The tower was restored for the 650th anniversary of the St George's Night Uprising in 1993.Interesting facts:The stronghold established in Paide was the second castle built by the order in the territory of Estonia after Viljandi.Paide Vallitorn became the symbol of Paide Town and Jarva County and is depicted on their coats of arms.There is a memorial on Paide Vallimagi Hill to the four Estonian elders executed during the uprising.

Didn't expect to find a museum in the tower. The tower park is beautiful and the exhibition in the tower is very interesting. Would definetly like to visit again. Got a good laugh there.

Interesting place to visit. Not a typical museum because it introduces history in a fun way. Interesting movies in different languages.

Decorations are old and most of them broken. Most of expositions are just ridiculous. There are plenty of useless movies of really bad taste. Really bad use of such a nice building. Such a waste of money.
Just To be honest, there were some Good intentions, and several not bad expositions.

This is a place what didn’t give so big impression. We give money but didn’t get tickets. Just gave the paper with information but there wasn’t much information. At first floor you can see movie and go up by stairs or by elevator. At every floor has some exhibition. Some floors has also the possibility to watch film. Wasn’t very interesting. Just the place to visit when you visit town and other sightseeing. But not very impressive, probably don’t visit again.

This Museum is in the middle of castle remains that are located right in the heart of Paide behind the big church(no fee) that I also recommend visiting. You must be able to walk the stairs but I think there is a back entrance for vehicles. I did not get to visit the museum as it was closed.
This a a great place for picnic or great place to hang out with family and pets. I did not notice restrooms or water fountains. Maybe these are in the museum. There is no fee to visit the castle park but not sure about the museum in the tower. There are some sculptures and interesting object to look at in the park. There is good size parking even for large buses. There are several small shops and cafeterias near the place.

However the price is quite expensive, I do not regret visit there. Museum have 5 floors, on each one is different period. If you know a bit of history, you can have good examples for your story. Taking children with you it is great to tell the story about knights, soldiers, kings, reformation.... There is also a room for meeting and cafe on the top with cheap coffee.
What surprised me were talking pictures of Ivan the Terrible and Gustav Waza. Very impressing.
Only one disappointment was the view from the cafe windows and XXI century. It could be better there.
We spent more than 2 hours and it was worth to stay there and praiseworthy.
