Ok little museum about Hiiumaa life

Some interesting exhibits about Hiiumaa life but only a few exhibits had English subtitles meaning there wasn't too much for us tourists. I liked the details they had, interesting take on the manor...

Piece of history

Museum is educative and well spent time. I am wondering, if museum can be expanded and some more exhibitions could be shown to customers to prolong good time in the middle of history.

Kärdla's past

You'd hardly imagine that Kärdla had an industrial past. You are updated on the history of the family of the von Ungern-Sternbergs and what they promoted in Kärdla.
