Viimsi Open Air Museum

Tallinn, Estonia

Set right by the sea, this assembly of old farm buildings gives an excellent overview of 1920s fishing village life.

The museum is in fact the historic, coastal farm of Kingu, a relatively prosperous farm where, along with agriculture, fishing played a huge role in daily life.

The farm complex today consists of a farmhouse with a barn from the 1920s, a dwelling from the early 20th century, a separate barn, and houses belonging to fishermen Krüger and Silberfeldt.

Exhibits here display old fishing tools, showing the ways in which they were used.
