The baroque-rococo Suuremõisa castle was constructed between 1755 and 1760, commissioned by Countess Ebba-Margaretha von Stenbock (nee De la Gardie). Count Jacob Pontus Stenbock, who inherited the estate from his mother the Countess, exchanged it in 1796 for Uuemõisa manor due to debts he had run up. The new owner of Suuremõisa was Otto Reinhold Ludvig von Ungern-Sternberg.

Around the castle is an English-style park in which you will find more than 50 different species of trees and bushes growing. There is a walking path through the garden which visitors can use.

Suuremõisa Private School took up residence in the castle in 1920, but in 1930 it was nationalised. Today it is home to the Hiiumaa Vocational School and Suuremõisa Elementary School.
