Open air museum gives very good picture how one village looked like 100 years ago. Usually there is also an art exibition/sale. You can spend comfortably 2 hours walking around.

The village museum houses a large farmhouse with several buildings. The information was only in estonian, but the guide gave a paper on your own language.
