Railway and Communications Museum

The former terminal station of the railway was constructed between 1903 and 1905 to serve the resort town of Haapsalu. With its mysterious and grand station building, it now invites you to discover the nearly century and a half of Estonian railways and retired iron horses.

During the time travel in the old station with an unusually long roofed platform and a royal pavilion, you can hear the sound of a locomotive and meet the courteous station master from the 1930s.

In addition, we welcome you on a trip through the fascinating world of telecommunications and to explore the development and history of communication devices from telegraphy and crank telephone to mobile phones and computers.

  • Beautiful old Railway Station, that is Museum now

    Little outside from Haapsalu Old Town/Castle, is this lovely old wooden Railway Station from 1904, that now works as Museum. Last passenger trains were here 1995 and cargo trains 2004. Beautiful...

  • For train enthusiasts

    Lot of old rolling stock outside and a small display inside. Many signs only in Estonian, though. I think you can visit the locomotives without paying anything...

  • Interesting, small and free

    Interesting place to visit for all ages! There is beauty in the old trains and the magnificient station but also a bit of sadness of not being used anymore.
