peaceful and contemplative experience
Jul 2021
A walk in the village with several stops to see things and to eat other things was a very relaxing and refreshing experience in the beautiful and tranquill island of Muhu. Highly recommended. I'd definitely return to see more nooks and nice views.

I really liked the museum for its authenticity. Cozy, of course, simple. Interesting, tidy, large area.

Worth to visit.
Aug 2020
A perfect place to visit if you have interest to see how people have lived in small villages for hundreds of years. Extra value (not sure if for those who have no touch with these books) comes from the exhibition of Juhan Smuul - a famous Estonian writer lived and worked there. The exhibition was very interesting (but not for kids).
P.S. Most of houses in the village are still in use thus try not to get lost in somebody's garden and disturb their lunch etc - this is not a part of the exhibition :)

Lovely local museum of Island Life
Sep 2019
The was a traditional fishing village that has been turned into a museum. When you enter there are information sheets in a variety of languages (including English, German, and Russian - maybe more) that give a brief overview of each building you can enter. There are a variety of farm, school room and housing buildings. The museums buildings are in an area in a neighborhood that also has locals current homes, so be sure you follow the directions and map. Very nice collection of Island embroidery and costumes in one building with examples from several different islands showing both the different embroidery designs and woven patterns for the clothing too.

Impressive place. History and culture together.

The well kept houses vividly tell the visitor how it was to live in harsh rural conditions. The embroidery museum is simply a must.

Interesting small museum
Aug 2019
It is the more interesting because it is not just a standard open air museum depicting life of Muhu island inhabitants. It also contains a small memorial museum to a famous Estonian writer Juhan Smuul, who was born in Koguva, Muhu and wrote a lot about the life in the island. On top of that thereis also a small display of traditional clothes and needlework, smoothly merging into even smaller display of modern Estonian cloth design which employs much of the traditional patterns. We did not take the guide for we had Estonian friends with us who explained much about the museum, exhibits, life and people. At the entrance we were given laminated plan of the museum (to be returned after the excursion) with some information. Plans are available in a number of languages.

Very well preserved Estonian village
Aug 2019
For only 6 euro you get a glimps of the rural life back in 19th century...and life was hard, no doubt about it. It was interesting to notice how low in height people actually were back then: doors are small and beds too. Farmhand's bedroom is tiny. It makes you appreciate what we have today. To see the whole village takes around one hour.

Lovely place with lot of history (+ art)
Jul 2019 • Solo
The Muhu Museum is an interesting place to get to know the history of the island. Here you can find out more about old architecture, Muhu national costumes, village school and blacksmith's workshop and other Muhu history. There are also art exhibitions and a museum shop.

Muhumaa - maa, kus aeg puhkab! Muhu island the place where a time is stopped! Место, где время остановилось и отдыхает!
Sep 2018 • Couples
If you are planning to visit Muhu and Saaremaa please add Koguva Village to your list. You would really enjoy the local nature, culture and you may have a general overview about life style in locality during last few centuries and important historical moments. I would recommend to visit this village to all my friends who travelling to Estonia.
