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.

Jul 2018 • Family
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.

A piece of old culture and traditions
Jul 2017 • Friends
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.
