Kalevipoeg Museum

KALEVIPOJA, Kääpa küla, Mustvee vald, Jõgeva maakond

REQUEST INFORMATION View on map

The Kalevipoeg Museum represents one of the 21 places, marked with a National Geographic's yellow window, that are worth exploring in Southern Estonia.
The museum is named after Estonian national epic "Kalevipoeg" because the Kääpa River is where the sword of Kalevipoeg is located, and around it are resting places, rocks, springs, swamps, and furrows.
In Kalevipoeg Museum, you get a good overview of the Estonian national epic. If you want, you can listen to the whole epic or sit abroad a huge ship called the Plane and watch a short film, where drone shots of beautiful Estonian places alternate with a cartoon. If you're brave enough, you can become Kalevipoeg in the virtual reality space and fight in hell with Sarviktaat and his henchmen.
