Visitors are welcome to examine the granary building, the drying barn, the cattle barn, buildings formerly occupied by farm help, and the residential building of the family’s heir August which also accommodates the museum’s permanent exhibition. Visit places and buildings described by Tammsaare in Part I of his Truth and Justice. The drying barn reveals the living and working conditions of the novel’s characters and Estonian peasant families: what were their tools like, where and how did they work, sleep, eat? Subject to prebooking, visitors enjoy taking part in in traditional folk games, solving riddles, and testing their might. Visit us to experience the lives of our Estonian ancestors!

The Museum also serves as a superb event venue. We’ll help you put together the event program, considering your customized requests. Take advantage of the opportunity to include visits to nearby sites: Kodru Bog, Albu Manor, Järva-Madise Church. We’ll also help you with catering for your event at the Museum.
