Estonian Agricultural Museum

Life in the countryside! 

The Estonian Agricultural Museum, located in the historic Ülenurme Manor in Tartu County, presents the development of agriculture and rural life in Estonia.

The agricultural museum provides an overview of the changes in the daily life of people in rural Estonia from the end of the 18th century to the beginning of the 21st century. Here you will find information about old tools and their uses, as well as stories about spirited countryside people. It is also possible to familiarize yourself with the history of animal husbandry: the exposition provides an overview of the development of cattle, sheep, pig, and horse breeding.

The technical field of the Agricultural Museum has a selection of Soviet-era agricultural machinery and equipment – many of which are quite rare. There is also a gantry windmill from Saaremaa and a children’s playground in the exhibition area.

The classroom display provides an overview of the history of beekeeping, and visitors can feel like a beekeeper with the help of a model hive.

The Estonian Agricultural Museum offers museum classes for children and adults, master classes or cooking school, and the opportunity to enjoy the pleasant surroundings, and to get to know farm animals.
