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.

    Great museum! The museum is huge and there’s loads of information about Saaremaa’s history right from the medieval period up to their independence from the Soviet Union. The exhibition is full of information and great displays of Soviet items. The castle is absolutely stunning, too!

    My wife and I spent about an hour here. We got an audio guide which focuses on the castle. It was informative but a lot of the discussions were too long. There were a few interesting parts but I found it a bit tedious.

    We were much more impressed with, and interested in, the permanent displays. They had one on the Forest Brothers - a group of anti-Soviet resistance fighters. It was excellent. The exhibits on the WW2 era were also very well done.

    They have a nice gift shop and the workers are very helpful.

    Recommended.

    This exhibit is a must-see in Kuressaare! The exhibit is very detailed with loads of information on how people lived their lives during the Soviet occupation. There’s tonnes of cool artefacts and reconstructions of old Soviet shops and restaurants. The lady who works there is super friendly and happy to give a little introduction on Soviet life. I definitely recommend this museum, I was there for about two and a half hours!

    A peaceful visit to a farm which showed how the islanders lived. We were treated to a display of Estonian national singing and dancing which was great fun and enjoyable. Set inthe forest the drive was also interesting. A very pleasant trip.

    It is such a nice view and path that leads to the crater. The colour of the crater is light green and looks interesting. The crater is small from the top but when you come closer it looks much bigger

    This galery is located in the Rathause, right near the tourism information centre and contains pieces of contemporary art. It is worthwhile to take a tour and to intorduce yourself with it :)

    This place will not take a lot of time, but this will be funny time. Will not retell this place story (as this is part you are going to discover on the place, but it was surprising and fresh. I'm not sure, if suits for small kids, but for teens was perfect.

    Even though it was a bit of a rainy day, this was a nice place to visit. There are several buildings and interesting things outdoors, including an old watchtower.

    If you are looking for something old and real - this is it! Beutiful old tiny city in Saarenmaa island in Estonia. We spent three nights in Georg Ots Spa - rooms were basic standard, spa department and treatments were ok.

    Don't you waste your time and check working time of this museum. It is opened on Wednesday to Sunday 10-17. Located in modest and unkempt house it does not confirms willingness to keep memory about persons who inhabited this house.
