Tori Horse Breeding Farm Museum

The oldest horse breeding farm in Estonia, Tori started operating in 1856, still breeds Estonian and Tori horses. Here, you can get acquainted with the stable complex belonging to the beautiful manor ensemble of Tori and see the daily life of the farm.

For the 165th anniversary of the Tori Horse Breeding Farm, the stable complex was renovated and a museum was opened with the exhibition Tori attic (Tori pööning). The exhibition features hidden treasures, stories and legends, and paintings by local artist August Pulst. Come and find out what kind of animals once lived in Tori Hell cave and exactly how tall Hetman, the father of all Tori horses, stood.

Home Museum of the Kapp Family was established in 1971 as a branch of Viljandi Museum. The house was thoroughly reconstructed in 1973 and a memorial tablet to Villem Kapp was placed on the building's wall.
The museum is in a house built by Hans Kapp, member of one of the most well-known families of composers in Estonia. He left the house to his son Villem, who wrote the greater part of his music here.
The exhibition introduces the life and music of composers Joosep, Hans, Artur and Villem Kapp.

The home where composer Mart Saar (1882–1963) was raised is located in the village of Hüpassaare. Much of Saar’s work was created here, in the midst of bogs and forests. 
After his death it was transformed into a museum showcasing the life and work of one of Estonia’s most famous choral musicians.
Near the house you can enjoy inspiring nature in the Hüpassaare Nature Study Trail in Soomaa National Park.

Tori Museum in Pärnu County was founded as the first parish museum in Estonia by August Pulst in 1934. The first item exhibited was a beer stein, which is now depicted on the museum's logo.

C. R. Jakobson was a successful farmer, politician, enlightener, and one of the most beloved leaders of the Estonian national movement. What makes the farm museum named after him in Kurgja special is the fact that the farm still engages in cattle breeding and farming.All buildings are built on the basis of Jakobson's own drawings and vision. At the Farm Museum, you can explore cattle, sheep, and horses, as well as restored old farm buildings such as a cattle barn, barn, mill, and threshing barns. In the Rehetoa Café, you can taste Estonian national dishes which are mostly prepared from the ingredients grown in the museum.
The new hands-on exhibition in the renovated mansion C. R. Jakobson – Awakener of the Estonian Spirit Field tells stories about the most important events, places, and people of Jakobson's life, as well as his greatest wishes.
