Estonian Open Air Museum, Tallinn Reviews

  • Breathtaking park. Went in a freezing snowy day and loved the walk. Lovely women in some farms explain anything you want to ask them. This is a must if you're visiting Tallinn

  • In summer more fascinating however in winter landscapes are amazing as well but in a low temperature like -15 centigrade you will be freezed. Also a good place to see where Estonian people lived and what costumes they wore etc.

  • We went on a cold winter day and it was fantastic😍😍😍❄❄❄☀❄☀❄☀ rented a soome kelk! It's really magical winter wonderland!

  • Great place to visit to walk around. Don’t come late as some houses might be closed. You basically walk around and see many different building from different eras. A great change of scenery from the the city.

  • TOURISTS BEWARE! this is a nice place but to see the different historical building with people in them, you need to visit early in the day. I went at 6pm on a day that they closed at 8pm and the guy at the entrance informed me that the houses are now closed! 2 hours before closing time! I still strolled around this humongous park, but the experience is not the same as I saw in the pictures with people dressed up.
