There is not much chance to see meteorite craters in Europe, so if you are interested in earth or space sciences, this place is a must. Otherwise, skip. There is a small museum (entrance fee is 0.60 EUR) about the discovery, describing the craters and many meteorite fragments are also displayed. Ask for the key in the grocery shop. The biggest crater is a beautiful, calm place with a lake. Just sit down there, and you may get some cosmic feelings :) The other craters are also in walking distance, but some of them is hard to find or reach.
There are direct buses from Kuressaare (25 minutes, <1 EUR) to the site (because it's next to a school.) You can also take some long distance buses stopping at Masa, and walk 15-20 minutes, a taxi (about 15 EUR) or hire a bicycle. We came from Kuressaare by bus and spent at the site about 1.5 hours and took a direct bus back to Kuressaare, but it was not enough. For us, this place was much more interesting than we expected.
