Museum of Coastal Folk

The Museum of Coastal Folk is situated in the old coastal village of Pringi in Viimsi. Here, in a cosy old schoolhouse where the museum has found its home, the harmony of the convergence of land, sea and humans shines and the charming nature of simplicity is maintained.

The exhibitions and educational and experience programs of the museum focus on the multifaceted history and culture of Estonian coastal folk and on promoting contemporary nautical and coastal culture.

A fun maritime-themed playroom lets our small guests catch the bug for sea life necessary for someone from a country by the sea.

The museum shop is known for its exciting selection of nautical gifts and books.
