Perfect place

Very interesting piece of history with authentic artefacts and very, very kind staff. This place is not so far from the center of Rakvere and of course must be visited.

An interesting stop in Rakvere; museum is set up to illustrate normal Estonial life in two periods in history (1800's) and then 1930s. Many decorative items (abundance) left us wondering if the museum was truly illustrative of real life in these periods... Museum attendees did not speak English.

This was included on our tour of the Rakvere Castle. Like the other reviewer mentioned, this seemed like taking a step in my grandmother's house (or even her mother's house). It was slightly interesting to wander around but it's not a must-see spot.

Old building with living and working rooms from last century. Much furniture, I remember from my parents photos. Typical middle class house
