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 anyreal 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 at the Estonian Open Air Museum in any season!

I really enjoyed this place, I visited it alone and I spend 1h30 inside to visit this old Estonian village. Good place to take nice pictures.

it's an outdoor park and exhibit of houses and other buildings from Estonia's history. Nice place to walk around. The folkloric dance show was very good, even though the dancers never smiled!

A 15 minute bus ride from the centre. Very inexpensive attraction with an interesting selection of rural buildings. Off season many of the buildings are closed and the re-enactors are few and far between. Small café with limited food- not much for vegetarians. Sullen service...More

This was one of the best attractions we visited on our visit to Tallin. Lots to see, well laid out and informative. Felt like a walk through the history of Estonian country life.
