    It is a nice place, 72 old buildings, relaxing possibility near the seaside but if you don't have much time to spend in the city you may forget to see there. If you want to see, you may reach by bus(21) or troleybus(6,7) easily. Don't get off at Rocca al mare shopping center! You may also visit zoo on your way.
    'Museum' is perhaps something of an understatement for a project that spans 80 hectares of land and contains 72 separate buildings. In fact the Estonian Open Air Museum is a life-sized reconstruction of an 18th century rural/fishing village, which comes complete with church, inn, schoolhouse, several mills, a fire station, twelve farmyards and net sheds.

    Vaba?humuseum (Rocca al mare) is an open air museum with old rural buildings, mills from over Estonia. You can enter the houses and see how people lived, where they sleep and what kind of plates and dishes they used.

    Estonian Open Air Museum

    Estonian Open Air Museum is the biggest museum on Estonian rural architecture. There are 68 farmhouses presented on a 84 ha area from different West-, North- and South Estonia and also from islands.

    The Museum also has a copy of a village church, a typical Estonian mill and a nice inn (Kolu Korts), where you can try traditional Estonian dishes like pea or bean soup, sauerkraut, barley cake, various meat dishes and of course the famous Estonian 'kama' (sour milk mixed with different....mm, I better not tell you all the secrets -- try it when you are visiting Estonia!!:)

    The zoo

    by Lodestar Updated Jun 2, 2003

    Just an example - one of many

    Tallinn has one of the best zoos in the nordic countries. there are more than 5400 animals from 350 different species - lions, tigers, buffalo, deer, polar beers, camels, crocodiles, hypopotamus, seals, elephants, monkies, reptiles, brids, you name it, we've got it! :)
    But honestly - it is quite a nice collection of animals and the area is quite large, even though the animals mostly live in cages unfortunately. So, if you enjoy zoos, you should definately go for a visit.

    The ticket - 39 EEK

    visit a zoo

    by barcodex Written Aug 24, 2002

    well, zoo is not so unique, but there is enough space for both visitors and animals. Zoo is located far from the center, in the big park, near the sea. You can spend a whole day in a zoo, with your children or without them. I definitely advice to visit a zoo in a warm sunny day. If you want to see all the animals, come in summer, because other seasons warm-loving animals hide themselves from the eyes of the visitors.

    Come and get acquainted with the Estonian 18-20th century vernacular architecture and rural milieu in a beautiful forest park of 80 hectares on the coast of the Bay of Kopli.
