Vaivara Blue Hills Museum

The renovated barn and smithy of the Vaivara Manor are the buildings of the museum. The exhibition is dedicated to the battles held on the Narva River and in the Blue Hills in 1944.

The museum exhibits weapons, uniforms, soldiers' personal effects, wartime photographs, enemy propaganda leaflets, and the like. On the big screen, you can watch historical films and documentaries.

Despite the heavy theme of war, the exhibition is meant for everyone: while adults can focus on exploring the details, younger people have the opportunity to touch some things and sit in the historic military vehicles.
