This place is worth going to - it’s very small so not exhausting at all. I would recommend buying a joint ticket with some other museum (e.g. Kadriorg Palace), which makes it even less expensive. The lovely staff deserves extra credit for friendliness and guidance!

Peter's cottage was part of our tour and we only saw the outside. Our guide shared many details about it along with the history of park, The interior of it was not open for tourist so that was disappointing. I am sure we would have enjoyed seeing it.

We came to see Kadriorg Palace on a Monday, not realising that it is closed on Mondays. Never mind we enjoyed the external views and the gorgeous parks and gardens.

We walked in the same places as Peter the Great and his wife Catherine and looked out the same windows. The original portraits were amazing. We were the only visitors at the time. Although the Palace was closed the little cafe underneath the palace was open and had lovely pastries and cakes.

We visited Kadriorg Park to escape from the hordes of tourists in the old town and stumbled upon what remains an enduring memory of Tallinn.

This small house museum gives a different glimpse of Peter's life. It is recommended that one first watches the excellent video presentation in the basement to set the scene before wandering freely around the other rooms. This museum is not to be missed.…

Free with Tallinn card. Museum is small but worth it. Peter the I really lived here and you can see old historic furniture as well. Very nice ladies working in the museum.
