Estonian Open Air Museum (Eesti Vabaõhumuuseum)

Just 15 minutes from the city centre of Tallinn, you find a wonderful place –Estonian Open Air Museum, showcasing the country's rural architecture and way of life.

The 14 farms in the museum provide an overview of how families from different strata of society lived in the 18th, 19th and 20th centuries. As you might expect to find in any proper village, there is a church, an inn, a school house, mills, a fire station, a shop and fishing sheds by the sea. At the museum, you can buy handicrafts, ride horses, and try traditional Estonian dishes at the inn.

The museum is open year-round, offering entertainment and some wisdom.
Tallinn Card holders can use the museum's audio guides free of charge.
