This new museum is telling the interesting story about the rock formations on Saaremaa. On exibit is also a meteorite weighing 96 kg.
Located 300 m behind the museum is the famous meteor crater.

The museum is small but interesting, and contains some debris from the formation of the crater. You can walk around the lake in the middle of the crater and a path around the rim is currently being renovated. There's a display board with some information and a viewing platform. You can travel by bus from Kuressaare directly to Kaali, but there are only a few services per day.Several other people visited Kaali crater at the same time we were there.

The Kaali Meteorite crater is in a very tranquil spot deep in woodlands. It is a bit tricky to get to. Best option is a bus from Kuressaare 15km south of here. Some buses stop at Kaali, but most use the main road across the island. If you are on one of these you will have a 2km walk from the main road. There are around 9 meteor craters here but all except the main one are overgrown. Steps lead up to the crater rim where you get a fine view of the pool and tree lined bank surrounding it. It is surprisingly echoey once you are inside and there are signs which describe the event. Apparently the meteor hit the Earth 4000yrs ago. This is one of the few places in the world where you can see such a thing.
