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!

We got there by bus 21 from the Freedom Square and returned to Freedom Square by bus 41 leaving opposite the Museum (directly opposite the stop we got off at). We enjoyed viewing the thatched cottages of long ago. The museum has potential for improvement...More

One of the highlights of our trip to Tallinn, the open air museum is set in a vast forested area. The exhibits are well presented and the buildings are all very well maintained. Its location adding the Baltic sea is also a big plus. A...More

Really nice place to spent the Midsummer Eve. There are lots to see in this park. It of course was evident that there will be lots of mosquitos at late evening. To go there, avoid free bus, it was not that nice:)

We went by local bus, which stops just outside the museum. The setting is lovely, in woodland going down to the shores of the Baltic. There is a wide range of buildings, from different parts of the country, with good explanatory material in English. They...More

The property is manicured to the T. Everything seemed authentic and the staff was amazing. I could have spent days here, but I had only so much time. I think the Rocca Al Mare Open Air Museum is a MUST see if you visit Tallian.

We didn't see any dressing up areas there. We were very happy with the bus; I'm sure it's more than every 30 mins. The bus came with 2 mins of us waiting but I guess we may have been lucky.
