Estonian Open Air Museum

  Vabaőhumuuseumi tee 12 ,   Rocca al Mare          +372 654 91 00     21 Jun 2024

Put on your hiking boots! This outdoor museum comprises a whopping 82 buildings, mostly farm-related, including windmills, all sprawled out across 70 hectares of forest and land in Rocca al Mare, on the shore of the Kopli Gulf. A true experience is to witness the entire premises by taking a horse-drawn wagon or sleigh, depending on the weather. The newest addition to the museum is the 'Herd Boy's Adventure Trail', where you can meet the herd boy Ants and his dog Muri. Here, you will learn about a herd boy's day, his skills, and what to watch out for in the forest. The fully furnished Kolkhoz apartment building is widely popular and won the Best Estonian Museum Exhibit Award in 2021. Informative signs in Estonian, Russian, English, and German guide you through 150 years of farming history. Along the way, you’ll also be welcomed by various landladies or landlords dressed in the appropriate attire for the era of the buildings they tend to, who will be happy to share colourful stories from the farm, candy shop, tavern, etc., bringing the structures and history to life. Sample the pea soup and other traditional and hearty foods at the Kolu tavern (Kolu Kõrts) and visit the Lau shop where you can buy 1930s-themed sweets and handicrafts. Take bus No. 21 or 21b from the Viru stop or the Freedom Square to the Rocca al Mare stop.
