Getting immersed in the past
The scope of the Estonian Open Air Museum is impressive, spanning hundreds of years of history. The museum consists of a staggering 76 buildings sprawling over 80 hectares of forest and land, all telling the story of Estonia's rural past.
To help visitors explore the Estonian Open Air Museum, a horse drawn carriage carries groups around the different points of interest, which include a traditional schoolhouse, windmill and wooden chapel dating back to 1699. Audio guides are available to talk visitors through these points of interest, casting light on some of the great attractions.
Visitors who have worked up a thirst while exploring the Estonian Open Air Museum can enjoy some traditional local food and drink at a peasant's tavern. It is just one of the great interactive sites in the museum and a favourite amongst the crowds attracted to the area.
When guests of the Radisson Blu Hotel, Tallinn leave the Estonian Open Air Museum they find that they have a far deeper appreciation of Tallinn and its cultural history. Those that develop a taste for the local foods available at the museum will find there is a range of great restaurants in Tallinn that can cater to their needs.
