During a tour of Tallinn we stopped off here, but unfortunately it was getting late and we didn't have enough time to have good look around, plus it came into rain. The grounds are not huge, but it took a little time walking from one building to another. Lots of miniature lighthouses made of wood. You could see how people lived years ago and the smuggling that went on. Plenty to read about at each exhibit. A little shop and a nice lady who answered our questions. Would have liked to have spent longer here. Worth a visit. It was lovely walking on grass and not cobbles.

We were lucky enough to enjoy several interesting activities: the making of butter in old fashion way (and eating it), travelling in an old Soviet bus to the seaside farm and the visit of the farm. Also, the first part of the museum is quite interesting, offering a glimpse of the life and history of the Estonians.

We visited the Viimsi Open Air Museum during a one day visit to Tallinn. We had taken an organised coach trip and this was to be the last stop trip of the day,
The museum seemed to be quite a distance from Tallinn and is situated on the coast. It is basically a site where historic buildings are reconstructed and are open for visitors to explore. In truth, the site is not a large one’ but nevertheless contains some interesting buildings and these are furnished and equipped as if they were still inhabited. Many of the houses are equipped with boats suggesting that the local economy would be reliant on the sea.
Inside the interiors of the houses seem very ‘Spartan’ to modern eyes with only possessions that would be used on a daily basis and furnished predominantly with tables’ chairs and beds. One house has a large weaving loom and there is a semi buried stone built store with a brief history of smuggling.
Outside there are examples of boat building with what looks like a steam chest (to bend planks). A large working swing capable of accommodating a number of adults will entertain older children (or young adults). The site is edged by a small shingle beach from where the visitor can see the city of Tallinn in the distance, and to be honest it was quite pleasant to walk here.
The entrance to the site is a small building selling souvenirs of your visit here.
On the day of our visit there was a small farmers market in the filed next door though we did not visit this.

It's not a big but great activity on a nice day - fantastic sea view, nice old houses - you'll see the Estonian 18th century farm and fisherman's cottages.
