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.

  • Love it!

    Tierd of town, but have no time to get out? Here it is. Just preffer with better weather. There is lots to see and it is hard to believe, that people only around 100-150 years ago lived like this...

  • Tastefully organized

    I spent about 3h on recommendation of hosts. It's a bit out of the way so good to take a taxi or Uber. Recreation of centuries old lifestyle of traditional Estonian farm life. If you go on a weekend...

  • Calm and peaceful

    I really enjoyed this place, I visited it alone and I spend 1h30 inside to visit this old Estonian village. Good place to take nice pictures.
