Go if you want to know what Viljandi castle looked like

A nice little museum of local history. Good to visit before the castle ruins. It also has some stuffed Estonian wildlife.

Surprisingly interesting museum

The museum is quite small,but they have done a very nice job of portraying the history of Viljandi. When strolling in the old town, it is worth an hour's visit. I would suggest visiting the museum...

A pleasant and cosy museum

We loved it, the kids loved it. Not too big. And interesting to watch. Also for the children when You explain the story behind. Only the toilet is difficult to get into.
