Estonian History Museum – Maarjamäe Palace

Maarjamäe Palace, built in 1874, now belongs to the Estonian History Museum. During its colourful history, the building has been a well-known holiday destination, the summer residence of the Russian Count Anatoly Orlov-Davydov, a popular restaurant/nightclub, and the Military Aviation School of the Republic of Estonia.
The permanent exhibition ’My Free County’ takes visitors on a journey of 100 years, from the birth of the Republic of Estonia to the present. The playful Children’s Republic is a place where the real world and fantasy world are combined, as children have a chance to play there with a blue lion and its friends, all of whom have a common goal to establish an amazing country.

Restaurant Maarjamäe is also located in the palace.
