Palamuse O. Luts’s Parish School Museum
The Palamuse museum is the only museum in Estonia that presents the history of parish schools.
Parish schools played an important role in the history of Estonian culture – the very first Estonian teachers, municipal officials, and other educated persons came from these schools. In the Palamuse museum, you can learn about the life of parish schools through the one of the best-known and most well-read books in Estonia, Kevade (The Spring) by Oskar Luts.

The museum provides an overview about Oskar Luts’s childhood, as well as the highlights of Palamuse school and Estonian parish schools in general.
The largest exhibition introduces school life in Palamuse in the 19th century with the help of the popular book Kevade (The Spring). The exhibition provides an overview of a school day at that time, relations between local Estonian and Baltic Germans youngsters, and much more.
You can also see the dwellings of the headmaster’s family, who lived in the southern part of the schoolhouse. You can get an idea of the importance and duties of the headmaster as the school principal, have a glimpse on the his wife’s kingdom, the kitchen, and even peek into their bedroom.
