The centrepiece of the exhibition is a rare painting by Ivan Aivazovsky from the collection of the Art Museum of Estonia. The newly-restored work of art has been placed amongst seascapes from Russian, Latvian and Estonian collections, which together give an overview of the oeuvre of Russia’s best-known marine painter.

Permanent Exhibition

Western European and Russian applied art and sculpture from the 18th–20th century
The Kadriorg palace and park were founded by the Russian tsar Peter I. The well-preserved main hall is one of the best examples of Baroque architecture not only in Estonia but also in the whole Northern Europe. The main exposition of the collection of the Kadriorg Art Museum (Western European and Russian art from 16th–20th century) is valuable and quite remarkable. In addition, temporary exhibitions, concerts, and theatre performances take place.
