About
The centre of the Hiiumaa Museum. Popularly known as the Long House (the longest wooden house in Kardla, over 60 m), the building was constructed in the 1830s as the residence for the directors of the Hiiu-Kardla Cloth Factory. It has been home to several generations of Ungern-Sternbergs and Peltzers. During the Soviet period, the building was used by various agencies.The Long House includes workrooms and offices, depositories, a library, concert and exhibition halls. In addition to the story of the development of Kardla and the factory, a factory worker’s residence is on display. Various short-term exhibitions are also organized year- round.

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.
