Palamuse O. Luts’s Parish School Museum

Palamuse O. Luts’s Parish School Museum

Köstri allee 3, Palamuse alevik, Jõgeva vald, Jõgeva maakond


The historical Palamuse Parish Schoolhouse is now open to visitors as it was seen in 1895.

There, you will find the classroom and the living rooms of the parish clerk, known from the movie Kevade. The heart of the museum is located in the freshly completed main building, where you will also find a classroom and a workshop. The main exhibition of the main building is meant for the whole family, reflecting the history of the Estonian parish schools through Kevade. The text introducing the entire building seems to have been written by the character Toots from the movie: you can learn to play the violin, catch Lati Pac, and see what Toots was hiding in his pockets! You can also learn how the movie Kevade was made and how it affected the Estonian culture.
