Favorite thing: In the end of the XIX century - the beginning of the XX century architect J.Arenberg developed the project of the organization of a historical museum in the castle. However its realization was delayed and was not finished.

The Russian military department allocated money for its reconstruction. The castle got its view during this reconstruction. It carried by all the troubles through wars (Soviet-Finnish Winter war and World War II in 1940-1945) up till now.

A museum in a fortress opened only in 1970th years, after careful studying ensemble and carrying out of architecturally-archeological works by the Estonian restoration management under direction of architects H.I.Potti, E.A.Kaljundi and A.Rappoport.
