07 October 1975 - 31 December 2020
The exposition introduces the history, culture and nature of the area.
Iisaku Museum was established in 1975 by Helmi and Daniel Vardja, who laid the foundations of an interesting and concise exposition together with the schoolchildren of Iisaku.
The bulk of exhibits dates back to the first half of the 20th century. The times when simple country-life was led become closer to visitors with the help of the display and the stories told by the tour guide. In those days farm work was practiced: fields were cultivated and cattle were bred plus everything else required for the sustenance of a family.
The handicraft skills of men and women are presented in the masters’ room. Tailors, blacksmiths, carpenters, cobblers – all were capable masters.
The nature room of Alutaguse fascinates a visitor with a rich collection of stuffed animals.
Frequent museum-goers know that in addition to the permanent display, the museum also holds temporary exhibitions either put together by its own staff or coming from the outside; the museum also displays the works of art made by local young people every year.
Iisaku Museum helps to keep up Estonian traditions through the organisation of popular events.
