Peter the Great House Museum

Peter’s house or the “old palace” is a building with a long and interesting history and it originates from the time before the present Kadriorg Palace was named the "new palace".
Peter the Great and his wife Catherine stayed here on their visits to Tallinn. The museum’s exposition is comprised of a drawing room, dining room and bedroom, and the recently converted attic and excavated cellar. The house is furnished with items that belonged to the Tsar and other objects from the period.

The House Museum organizes tours and educational programmes for pupils and lectures for adults. The museum premises are available for exhibitions and events for smaller groups.
