Put on your hiking boots! This outdoor museum includes a whopping 70 buildings, mostly farm related, windmills, all sprawled out across 70ha of forest and land in Rocca al Mare, on the shore of the Kopli Gulf. A true experience is to witness the entire premisis by taking on the horse-drawn wagon or sleigh, depending on the weather. A recent addition is the Kolga Kid's Farm where young and old alike can enjoy visiting with the various farm animals onsite. 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 wear for the era of building(s) they tend to, who will be happy to share colourful stories from the farm, candy shop, tavern etc. and it certainly brings the structures and history to life. Sample the pea soup and other traditional and hearty foods at the Kolu tavern (Kolu Kõrts) and pay a visit to the Lau shop where you can buy 1930’s themed sweets and handicrafts. Take bus N°21 or 21b from the Viru stop to the Rocca al Mare stop.
