Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
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.

    The bus stopped right next to the train station which is now a museum and a good place to start exploring Haapsalu. The building itself is rather grand and the platform is 216 m long. The Russian Czars used to come here as it was a summer resort town. Part of the station building has an imperial pavilion. The station was used from 1904 to 1995 and is now a museum. Some old railway stock can be seen on the tracks and there is a small entrance fee but i was never charged.

    This is a small museum but interesting to spend an hour here. I never realised how many Swedes lived along the coastline and islands. There are documentaries to watch while you are there and some old houses outside as well as an annex across the road. Also there is a small walkway over the water where you can see their traditional boats. Well worth the 3 euro entrance fee.

    Surprise after surprise we were getting at in the magic Haapsalu Town and one of them was this amazing Haapsalu Shawl Museum.
    It is located in Ehte street, just above the region of Haapsalu Episcopial Castle. Actually, this museum is settled in a jewellery workshop, with a permanent exhibition on the past and present of the Haapsalu shawl, that shows to the visitors the very fine patterns of shawls and generally, the art of knitting handicraft.
    Also is possible to buy one of the masterpieces for yourself.
    We were very glad to see such nice exhibition.

    Unfortunately the museum was closed when i passed by but it is still worth looking at the wonderful wooden building located in a well landscaped garden.

    This gallery belongs to the cultural center and is located at the same building with the library and theater space. The gallery shows mainly professional Estonian contemporary art.
