The Seto Museum offers an opportunity to learn the unique history and culture of Setomaa through having a look at the family life, traditions and customs of Seto families in Obinitsa. The display is especially focused on the period from 1920 to 1940.

The cosy exposition of the small museum features objects collected from the neighbouring villages. The handicraft collection of Seto women is very unique: it includes colourful towels used to decorate the corner where the icon stood, decorative towels and national costumes. You can also visit archeological display and a typical Seto small chapel (tsässon).

You can get tourist information on Setomaa and the Põlva and Võru Counties and use the internet in our Tourist Information Point. You can also buy Seto handicrafts, books, CDs and DVDs in the Seto language or about the Setos here.
