Iisaku Museum
Iisaku Museum
Founded in 1975, the museum is located in a former ministry school building. Its permanent displays are arranged thematically in separate rooms, where you will obtain an excellent overview of life in the country, farms in the olden days, the work of master craftsmen and the history of the local fire fighting service. Separate exhibitions focus on the unique natural environment and diversity of the area, the history of the Iisaku school and the writer of the well-known Estonian song ‘Ema suda’ /A Mother’s Heart/. The teacher’s apartment on the second floor presents a picture of life in the early 20th century, and there is a special exhibit looking at the Iisaku region’s population of half-Estonian/half-Russians. If you wish, you can also watch locally shot films.

Absolutely in the middle of nowhere, a small house representing history of a region starting from the first findings from pronze age and ending with current well-known persons from the nearby area and their influence in modern Estonia. All the different ages covered and enthusiastic staff sharing proudly the different stories about life in the small village during the last centuries.
Exhibits about nature and natural sounds, history of local crafts and craftsmen, fishermen, firefighters tools and traditions, local traditional clothes and a lot more.
In case you are in the area, make a stop and get engaged!
