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.

You can explore all kinds of farm houses both inside and outside, and read about their purpose. In addition to farm houses, there are chickens and bunnies that attracted kids a lot.

It's a beautiful farm muuseum with an extensive exposition of Seto traditional lifestyle. They have animals in the farm, so you can pick some grass and feed hens or goat :). We had a great guide with Seto roots, she was happily explaining everything she knew.

Setomaa is an intetesting place to visit. This museum shows how setos lived 100 years ago.
Seto leelo is listed in intangible list heritage list of UNESCO. So find local guide and seek for possibility to listen to seto leelo. Also museum provides a concert if ordered in advance.

It is a great place where you can see how local people lived in the 20th century. They have a dog (behind fence), 2 goats, a horse and 2 ponies. They have couple of exhibitions and about the other things you can ask from helpful staff.

We were taken to Seto village where we were met by women in their national costumes. The performed several songs and dances. Most of them were aged except one. The music remembered me Ural people, like Udmurts or Komi; the belong to the same language group and have some common elements in folk costumes but languages are different and they don't understand each other. The meal was also very specific. Go there and taste yourself!

The muuseum sits near the town on Värska. And theres alot of wild natuure around to see. But te muuseum itself gives you the feeling of family life about 200 years ago.
