We had a had a lovely day wandering around the open air museum in the sunshine. Only 5 or 6 houses/buildings were open but that was plenty to keep us busy for about 3 hours! Definitely recommend if you have a spare day in Tallinn.

I visited this museum in 2011 and I think its a must see attraction in Estonia, not far from Tallinn city center. It gives an idea on how could have been living in a pre-urbanized and pre-industrialized village of the North of Europe. The mill,...More
