Estonian Road Museum

Located in the historical Varbuse postal station, Estonian Road Museum introduces the development of roads and traffic through interactive displays.

A large variety of two-wheeled vehicles, a spectacular machinery hall and exciting exhibitions offer plenty to explore.

The Estonian Road Museum and Postitee (Postal Road) represent one of the 21 places worthy of discovery in South Estonia marked with a yellow National Geographic window and recommended for history and culture enthusiasts.

Good to know:
The new permanent exhibition of the Estonian Road Museum opens in spring, 2016. Before Christmas, you can enjoy the Christmas programme of the Road Museum 'Wanderer's Christmas' ('Reisiselli jõulud').

Getting there

The museum is located 48 km from Tartu, 22 km from Võru and 12 km from Põlva. Coming from Tartu, the easiest and fastest way is to take the Võru highway from Tartu and drive until you get to the Reola crossing. Turn left towards Põlva. When you reach the county border in Liiva, indicated by the sign of Põlva County ('Põlvamaa'), turn right from the main road to the old Tartu-Võru road aka the Postal Road. You pass through the villages of Vooreküla, Karilatsi and Ihamaru on the twisty and narrow Postal Road. The last complicated part is the Ihamaru crossing, where you need to go straight; in 5 km, you'll reach the Road Museum.
