The Basics

Located southwest of Tallinn’s city center on the shore of Kopli Bay, the Estonian Open Air Museum’s property hosts 14 farms, a church, an inn, a schoolhouse, a windmill, a fire station, and various shops—all of the establishments you’d find in an 18th-century village. Once inside the reconstructed villages discover the history of Estonia’s countryside towns, shop for handicrafts, eat a traditional meal at the inn, or go on a horse-drawn carriage ride.
