Estonian History Museum – Maarjamäe Palace

The Estonian History Museum is located the summer estate with a colourful past, known as Maarjamäe Palace. On the 100th anniversary of the Republic of Estonia (in 2018), the renovated historical palace was opened as an immersive history centre with the updated permanent exhibition My Free Country. The exhibition takes visitors on a journey through 100 years, from the birth of the Republic of Estonia to the modern day.

In the "Children's Republic," created as a part of the permanent exhibition, younger visitors can learn about the organisation of a democratic state through play.
During the first half of the 17th century the palace served as a sugar factory. Later on, it functioned as a starch and spirits factory, and a modern hotel-restaurant.
