Viimsi Open Air Museum

Come and see an authentic and historical coastal village for yourself!

The main part of Viimsi Open Air Museum is the historical Kingu farmyard: a farmhouse (with a barn) from the 1820s, a dwelling from the early 20th century, a barn and other buildings.

The reconstructed Krüger and Silberfeldt fishermen's houses are also situated in their historical location on the farm land.

Fishing net sheds, boat hoists and drying racks as well as objects needed in the fishermen’s everyday work can be seen.

The museum hosts a range of events and there is a farmer's market every Saturday year-round from 10:00-14:00.

Tickets also allow admission on the same and following day to the nearby Museum of Coastal Folk.
