The Kadriorg Art Museum is housed in the Kadriorg Palace, a magnificent structure designed for the Russian Emperor Peter the Great in 1718 by the Italian architect Niccolò Michetti. The museum`s collections include Western European and Russian art from the 16th - 20th centuries. The palace’s spectacular Great Hall is one of the finest examples of Baroque architecture in all of Northern Europe. It’s a perfect venue for concerts and small theatre performances, and hosts festive receptions with caterers in historic, 18th-century costumes. The palace’s premises can accommodate up to 200 people.
