Museum of Coastal Folk
The Museum of Coastal Folk is situated in the ancient seaside village of Pringi in Viimsi, just a 30-minute drive from central Tallinn. Here, in a cosy old schoolhouse, the museum has found a home for itself, a place to demonstrate the harmony of land, sea and man meeting, a place to preserve the beauty of simplicity.
Exhibitions as well as educational and artistic programmes show the many faces of Estonia's coastal folk, their history and culture, and the present seaside culture. You can count on smelling the waft of tar and hearing fishermen’s jokes as well as sailors' words of wisdom!
A nice sea-themed play room and the seal-boy Vigri are present to give little visitors an appreciation of the seaside lifestyle, so essential to everyone who lives in a sea-state.
The museum shop is renowned for its choice of marine-themed presents and books.
