Overview
More
The Museum of Coastal Folk is situated in the ancient seaside village of Pringi in Viimsi, just a 30-minute drive from central Tallinn. Here, in a cosy old schoolhouse, the museum has found a home for itself, a place to demonstrate the harmony of land, sea and man meeting, a place to preserve the beauty of simplicity. Here, on Viimsi peninsula, the land ends. You cannot go any further on foot, and you don't want to go back. Exhibitions as well as educational and artistic programmes show the many faces of Estonia's coastal folk, their history and culture, and the present seaside culture. You can count on smelling the waft of tar and hearing fishermen's jokes as well as sailors' words of wisdom! A nice sea-themed play room and the seal-boy Vigri are present to give little visitors an appreciation of the seaside lifestyle, so essential to everyone who lives in a sea-state. The museum shop is renowned for its choice of marine-themed presents and books. See also Viimsi Open Air Museum - one ticket, two museums.

A nice and educational exposition in a nicely renovated old school building of the 1920-ies. The exposition seems aimed at larger school classes but can easily be done by just a family. For 10 EUR you have a combined family ticket to the Viimsi Open...More

This in many ways would be seen as old fashioned as its not interactive but we enjoyed it very much. There are lots of photos with English explanation plus artefacts to see. I was fascinated by a film of hunting in the frozen seas. They...More
