Estonian Open Air Museum is a safe, educational and exciting place to visit for families with children. Here every child can jump into the puddle, run, shout and whoop carefree. You can pat the animals, pick flowers or have a fun snow war with your family.

  • The hands-on exhibition 'Every Small Step Counts' is open in the Kolga Farm's barn-shed building, intended for visitors of all ages. The barn area is home to the museum's domestic animals and birds, which can be visited at guided visits.   Inside the shed building is an exhibition and activity area designed for children and families. More detailed information is available here.

  • Ride on horse carriage or sleigh brings joy both to old and young. Horses stop at the Kolu Inn. Tickets are sold by coachman and ticket office. During the winter season, it is worth announcing the wish to ride a horse already at the ticket office, then the coachman knows to be ready in time. More information here and at the museum ticket office.
