Maarjamäe Palace was built as summer manor in 1874 by order of count Anatoli Orlov-Davydov. Most remarkable part of the Palace is Gothic tower with portal. Latest bigger construction and renovation works were taken place in the second half of 1980’s. As a result the History and Revolution Museum of the Estonian SSR was opened in 1987.
