Estonian Open Air Museum

Just a 15-minute drive from the centre of Tallinn, you will find a wonderful place – the 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 18–20th 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, lovely workshops and events, and something you, regardless of your age, might not have known before.

  • My Favorite Sight

    A great way to spend your day, especially on a Monday when other museums are closed. I visited in the early Spring and it was muddy from the snowmelt so pay attention to your footwear choice.

  • Amazing place. Must see in Talinn.

    We only had an hour here, and could not do this justice. beautiful look into how we used to live. Can be found on 21 bus route from city centre. takes 20 minutes. Well worth the trip! 7€ fee..
