Well worth the fee.

Eight rooms with different aspects of the last 100 years on the island. Sadly, many of these are being lost. Saw costumes, wedding rituals, tools, crafts. Much to see on videos. English available. Excellent hostess to answer questions. Senior discount available.

Pearl among local history museums

You can learn more about the history of the island, see national costumes and household items as well as fishery equipment, familiarize yourself with local paintings (there is even portrait of Kennedy). Nice environment is made in this museum not only for adults but also for children who can play toys inside and enjoy the interactive displays. You can also buy a postcard or two and postal stamps in the museum. Also there are many souvenirs and coffee corner. Definitely this is a place to visit when you are in Kihnu.
