Reliving the historic times from 18th to 20th century, the Rocca Al Mare Open Air Museum is set on 14 farms that function according to the rural roots with its own school, church, mills, fire station, fishing sheds and homes. The museum offers hand made souvenirs, horse rides and even traditional Estonian food at the on-ground Inn. The place also offers traditional entertainment during special events.

If history is what you love, there is no better way to travel back in time and experience the workings of a small village than spending an afternoon here.

Estonian Open Air Museum, Tallinn Reviews - Write a Review

  • 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.

  • Very nice place to be "in the nature in the city", traditional houses with possibility to enter inside. Very nice walk and staff. Must-see in Tallinn.

  • Great place for bicycle family day. It is like historic town with Estonian village style in a different century. You follow routes and maps to different farms, buildings, swings. They also do horse cart rides. Perfect if you love walking and enjoy sea views. We didn't get to go everywhere, because on foot with kids you need to plan your distance back to exit. Next time we'll try next area and hope they will fix the sings by the sea. The place has a tavern to get some drinks and food. However, I would not plan tavern as full meal stop, just comfortable to have a break. Kids were happy to sit and drink their juice, but food was a little bit unusual for them, so "No" to tasting. There are picnic areas, if you do plan a meal break.

  • All the landscapes that you would need to travel to different cities in the country to visit, are gathered here for you, in a very beautiful and calming atmosphere, as if you ate walking in far villages. Easily accessible by public transport. There is also a bike rental at the entrance. If you visit the place on weekend, you may alsi get the chance to watch some traditional dances, performed by locals.
