Rocca al Mare Open Air Museum

Get a glimpse of true Estonian countryside and village life in Estonian Open Air Museum!

The Estonian Open Air Museum is akin to a village, with 12 farms, as well as its own church, tavern and schoolhouse. There are a number of mills, a fire station, fishing net sheds as well as a dancing area and a village swing.

The museum is located in a lovely, well-maintained forest park on a high sandstone bank on Kopli Bay, just 15 minutes’ drive from the centre of Tallinn.

In addition to diverse farm architecture and incredibly beautiful natural environment, the guide will explain you all about the past and the present life of Estonian people.


The name of the area, Rocca al Mare, hints to its location near the sea, it means a rock near the sea. The name is from the summer manor founded by A. Girard de Soucanton in 1863.
