Museum of Living History in Varnja

Kesk tänav 78, Varnja alevik, Peipsiääre vald, Tartu maakond


The Museum of Living History in Varnja is a permanent exhibition which introduces the life of the Old Believers in the late 19th century and the beginning of the 20th century. The museum examines the life of three villages in the Peipus area.

The museum was created with love and it gives the visitor an opportunity to feel the centuries-old vibe.

On request, the museum serves samovar tea and pies baked in a Russian oven. The exact price will be agreed upon with the service provider.

If you wish, you can order a guide (20 euros). As the museum is small, up to 25 people can visit it at a time.
