The Museum of Coastal Folk

The Museum of Coastal Folk is in an old school house located in the ancient village of Pringi. The exhibitions and events of the museum focus on the colourful Estonian history and culture as well as promoting present-day seaside culture. For the local people of the Viimsi area the museum is the place to gather and enjoy community events together. Locals are also quite fond of the educational coastal folk events. There is a childrens play room and a nostalgic exhibition of the Soviet-Era when the Kirov Collective Fishery was operating. Fact or fiction: Being at the top of its game, the Kirov Collective Fishery owned businesses in an unbelievably wide range of different sectors. Although everything was based around fish. There was even a saying that they used everything but the smell. The main products were sprats in oil, spiced sprats and blanched macerel. The fishery made clever use of its leftovers - which were made into animal food, shampoo and different industrial oils. Even wine was produced at the Kirov Collective Fishery. True or false - come and find out more about the Kirov Collective Fishery on the museums upper floor! More information: http://www.rannarahvamuuseum.ee/en/museum-of-coastal-folk/
