The Museum of Coastal Folk

The rich collection of the Museum of Coastal Folk 

The Museum of Coastal Folk is located in a cozy old schoolhouse in the historic coastal village of Pringi. The museum’s exhibitions, educational programs, and events focus on the versatile history and culture of the coastal people of Estonia and the popularization of modern maritime and coastal culture. The collections of the museum include approximately 13,000 items related to the life and activities of coastal people – from fishing hooks to boats.

The museum’s open displays are sure to attract the attention of all visitors. One of them includes objects related to the collective fishing farm Kirov, and others include interesting items and textiles from the museum collection.

In 2022, the new sea and fish-themed playroom was opened in the museum, where you can browse pictures of the largest fishes caught in Estonian waters.
