Steps Into The Past

There is perhaps no better way to understand the rural history of Estonia than to experience it first-hand. The Open Air Museum features 12 farms that show how rural families of different strata lived in the 18th, 19th and 20th centuries. 72 buildings are spread across 79 hectares of land.

There are individual homes and village staples, such as a fire station and schoolhouse. The village shop sells items specific to the time periods and the chapel has services on major holy days. At the tavern you can sample some traditional Estonian cuisine. This is a full-day adventure, and requires a lot of walking unless you rent a bicycle for the trip around the museum.
