Mikkel Museum

While you're in Kadriorg, it's worth visiting the Mikkel Museum, located next to the palace. The only national museum dedicated to a private collection in Estonia, it showcases artworks held by collectors and in private, from different eras, and in both permanent and temporary displays.

In 1994, Johannes Mikkel donated his collection, which can be considered one of the richest private collections in Estonia, to the Art Museum of Estonia. A small collection of Estonian art was added to it in 2006.

Getting there

Kadriorg Park takes in a large area by the sea in the northern part of Tallinn. The Mikkel Museum is on Weizenbergi Street close to the Swan Pond, opposite the palace. Take trams no. 1 or 3 from the city centre and get off at the last stop, from where you will see park, pond and restored historical buildings - including the palace and museum - just a couple of minutes' walk away. Many buses to the suburbs of Pirita and Lasnamäe also stop by the park (get off at the J. Poska stop). Coaches can drop their passengers off on Weizenbergi Street. There is also parking by the Russalka monument.
