Mihkli Farm Museum

Saaremaa, Estonia

Mihkli Farm Museum, found in 1959, is a previous farm typical to West-Saaremaa, with many architectural sights as well. Most buildings lie in a circle around the yard, part of which is separated by a stick fence as flower garden. Farm is surrounded by old ash trees, leafy branches used to be cut from them for sheep's winter feed.

In addition to a complete set of buildings there was a rich collection of everyday items. Almost all of the items were made by the inhabitants of this farm over two centuries.

So much more than we expected. Working farm building complex that has passed down through 8 generations of the same family. Translations available in many many languages. Very nominal entry fee (€6 per adult at time of this writing June 2023). We were on the fence about going since we only had 45 minutes. Wish we had longer, but very glad we went. Clean restroom too!

This is a must see museum on the island of Saaremaa. It is a wonderful museum of a real 8 generation farm started in 1727. Most of the tools and implements on display were hand made by the various owners.
