Small local history museum. Nearby on the lawn lies a boat from the ferry Estonia. Apparently it was torn off by a storm. Unfortunately, it didn’t save anyone. It was washed up by the current to the local coast.

An interesting small museum where you can learn about the local life. Great hostess!

Good museum. In some ways even more interesting than Kärdla's.

Museum house with a good view. Many things were far away, but some were familiar things from 20-50 years ago. A moment to meet the past and a reminder.

La Hougue Bie

La Hougue Bie is a Neolithic ritual site which was in use around 3500 BC. Hougue is a Jèrriais/Norman language word meaning a \'mound\' and comes from the Old Norse word haugr. The site consists of 18.6m long passage chamber covered by a 12.2m high mound. The site was first excavated in 1925 by the Société Jersiaise. Fragments of twenty vase supports were found along with the scattered remains of at least eight individuals. Gravegoods, mostly pottery, were also present. At some time in the past, the site had evidently been entered and ransacked.

In Western Europe, it is one of the largest and best preserved passage graves and the most impressive and best preserved monument of Armorican Passage Grave group. Although they are termed \'passage graves\', they were ceremonial sites, whose function was more similar to churches or cathedrals, where burials were incidental.
