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 and simplicity. Here, on Viimsi peninsula, the land ends. You cannot go any further on foot, and you don’t want to go back.

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 playroom and the sealboy Vigri are present to give little visitors an appreciation of seaside lifestyle, so essential to everyone who lives in a sea-side.

The museum shop is renowned for its choice of marine-themed presents and books.
Come discover the history of a seafaring nation!
