Kadriorg Palace
A trip to Tallinn isn’t a trip to Tallinn without a visit to this magnificent northern Baroque palace, built by Peter the Great for his wife, Catherine I, in 1718. The Palace houses the Kadriorg Art Museum, which exhibits the Estonian Art Museum’s collection of foreign art – Western European and Russian art from the 16th to the 20th century. Designed by Italian architect Niccolo Michetti, the grandiose palace and surrounding manicured gardens are a humbling example of Tsarist extravagance. Surrounding the Palace are several interesting palace side buildings. For example the restored kitchen building is now occupied by a cosy art museum called the Mikkel Museum, and the humble summer estate is the Peter I House Museum. The palace governor’s house (the castellan’s house) is now home to the Kastellaanimaja Gallery and the Eduard Vilde House Museum.

KUMU art museum
The aim of the Kumu Art Museum, opened in 2006, is to preserve and interpret Estonian art from the 18th century to present times. The complex itself is a work of art - it was opened in 2006 after nearly a decade of planning and construction, and is considered a modern architectural masterpiece. Curves and sharp edges mark out the copper and limestone structure, which is built into the side of a limestone cliff. Kumu's exhibition aims to appeal simultaneously to a diversity of audiences. Exhibitions display both classical and contemporary art and everything in between. The museum programme features art from the 18th century until today, Estonian art until the Second World War, art of the Soviet era and a temporary exhibition programme of contemporary art. 2008 European Museum of the Year Award was given to Kumu Art Museum.
