The Farm Museum of C.R. Jakobson at Kurgja

In the museum, you can learn about the life and work of Carl Robert Jakobson, who played a leading role during the times of Estonian national awakening in the 19th century, and the farm he established.
Animals are still kept on the farm so you can see cows, sheep and horses. You can also see the restored old farm buildings such as the cattle barn, mill, etc. You can try your hand at farm work and learn about old ways. Farm Work Day, Autumn on the Farm, Christmas on the Farm and others have become traditional events. You can enjoy Estonian national food on the farm if you pre-order. Useful information! C.R. Jakobson is on the Estonian 500-kroon banknote.
