Some interesting exhibits about Hiiumaa life but only a few exhibits had English subtitles meaning there wasn't too much for us tourists. I liked the details they had, interesting take on the manor system that was in place. A nice play corner for the children as well. Good place to wile away a rainy hour or so.

Museum is educative and well spent time. I am wondering, if museum can be expanded and some more exhibitions could be shown to customers to prolong good time in the middle of history.

You'd hardly imagine that Kärdla had an industrial past. You are updated on the history of the family of the von Ungern-Sternbergs and what they promoted in Kärdla.

Standing exhibition on the Ground floor concerns the history of the woollen factory at Kardla, the development of social housing for the factory workers and a domestic display of the Baltic German Baron who was the estate owner.
Current ground floor 'art' exhibition is a display of 'plaid' murals by a local weaver.
Current 1st floor 'art' exhibition are half a dozen displays of ceramics by local potters.
The fee as for all Hiiumaa attractions is tiny - I seem to recall 2€ per person.
