Within just a 15-minute drive from the center of
Tallinn there is a delightful place – the Estonian
Open Air Museum that invites you to see rural
architecture and get acquainted with village life.
The 12 farms of the museum show the visitor
the life of families of different income and occupation
in the 18th-20th centuries. As in any
real village, there is a church, an inn, a school,
a number of mills, a fire station, a village shop
and net sheds by the sea.
Although 74 buildings have been brought over
so far, the museum is far from being completed;
it is constantly changing and developing.
You can have good time and also learn something
