On a picturesque expanse of forest parkland on Kopli Bay is preserved a collection of historic Estonian buildings, transplanted from around the country to represent rural life through the centuries. Exhibits consist of various farm buildings, windmills, watermills and other country clutter offering a pleasant and informative escape from the hubbub of the nearby city. Handcrafts are on sale, horseback rides on offer, and a village inn caters for visitors keen to sample local fare.

Folk music and dancing displays are scheduled regularly, and most national holidays are celebrated here in grand style.
