A GLIMPSE INTO RURAL LIFESTYLE

The Estonian Open Air Museum, located in Tallinn’s picturesque, seaside Rocca al Mare district, offers a glimpse into the country’s rural lifestyle of the 18th to 20th centuries. The museum is arranged like a village, with 14 farms, a church, a tavern and a schoolhouse. There are also a number of windmills, fishing net sheds, a fire station, a dancing area and a village swing. Conferences and other events can be held in two genuine 19th-century buildings – the Kolu Inn and the Kuie School – as well as at the new Seto Farm and the Peipus-Russian dwelling.

Estonian National Museum, established in 1909 in Tartu, said in 1913 that establishing an open-air museum was also its task. Estonian intellectuals got the idea from visiting the open-air museums in Scandinavia and Finland. The First World War hindered the museum from taking more serious steps. As from 1921, the resources of the Estonian National Museum were spent on fitting out the Raadi Castle, and increasing economic difficulties did not enable to begin with the costly undertaking – the construction of the open-air museum.
