About
The Moniste Museum is the oldest open-air museum in Estonia; here you can light a fire in a Stone Age tepee or practice archery, slinging or lassoing. You can also learn how to make bone and earthenware objects, weave fishing nets and fabric, grind grain or bake a loaf of Stone Age bread. The threshing barn dating back to Czarist times features the interior of the 19th century building, tools, household utensils and clothing. The farmhouse from the times of the first Republic of Estonia exhibits the tools that blacksmiths used, horse necessaries, handicraft tools, national costumes, folk music instruments, etc. You can also try what farm works felt like at that time.

Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We got a guided tour through the houses which was a great experience with a lot of information we would have missed otherwise. We loved the visit to this little open air museum. It shows you how the Estonian farmers lived under the Baltic Germans.

It was quite a hot day when we stopped to visit the museum. There were several things we liked: it was not a big territory, but had lovely places for exhibits and a great system to introduce them. The items were from the nearby areas as well.
Some of them were surprisingly interesting and it as a lot to listen and see. It lasted a couple of hours and we also bought some souvenirs. The training centre is also for workshops and gatherings. It provided a good feeling to be there.
