Peter the Great House Museum

Peter’s house or the ‘old palace’ is a building with an interesting history and it originates from the time before the present Kadriorg Palace was built.
Peter the Great and his wife Catherine stayed here on their visits to Tallinn. The museum’s exposition is comprised of a living room, dining room, a bedroom, a converted attic, and a cellar. The house is furnished with items that belonged to the Tsar and other objects from the period.
Tours, museum classes, and lectures take place in the museum. Events can be organised for smaller groups in the rooms.
