The Episcopal castle of Haapsalu is one of the oldest castles in Estonia. The entire compound on 3 hectares is like one big museum. Here you can find much of the kind that you cannot find elsewhere: the unique, 803-meter long circular wall; internal defence system with earth ramparts and trenches; the only Dome Church in Estonia preserved in its historical integrity and many other things that can be labelled as exceptional and unique. One can spend days in the castle studying the different layers of the wall from the 13th-16th centuries, discover details of stonework, stairways, master signs carved into stone etc. There are people who come to visit the castle and each time the castle offers them new surprises. The walls of the castle are like a book, which can be read, but in order to read you have to know the secret language and the key to this is the knowledge accumulated over the years.

The exposition gives an overview of the birth and development of railway in Estonia, the daily living conditions of railwaymen, the tools used for the construction and maintenance of railway, but also the uniforms, documents and tickets related to railway business. The stylized interior of passengers’ waiting room and the office of the stationmaster are also interesting. The outdoor exposition demonstrates old-fashioned rolling stock.

Estonian Swedes have inhabited the coast and islands of West Estonia for almost 1000 years. Living as free peasants thanks to their privileges they managed to preserve their closed community with old and peculiar folk culture. The period ended with WWII when the Estonian Swedes moved to Sweden. After the restoration of independence in Estonian the coastal Swedes and their descendants established a museum, which task is not only the collection and exposition but also the revival of old folk culture. When ordered in advance, one can sail on traditional wooden sailing boats (Ruhnu jawl, Vormsi punt).
