Värska Farm Museum

This open-air museum farm provides a great insight into the life of a Seto family a hundred years ago. The farm's three barns suggest it was a wealthy farm. However, when entering the farmhouse, you'll be surprised: how is it possible that in such a small kitchen, with a very big stove taking up much of the space, an entire farm family of 10-15 people lived? Where did they sleep and do their activities? During the wintertime, visitors often want to relax in the living room for an extended time, because the heated stove creates a special coziness, especially when there's food in the oven, for instance bread rolls. The friendly farm ladies are happy to share their childhood stories or tales passed down from their ancestors, making you feel like you want to stay to hear more and more. However, it's a good idea to take time to explore the various surrounding buildings too, such as barns, shelters, the smoke sauna, and a bit further away, the pottery workshop and blacksmith's shop, and of course, the grand threshing barn, in which you can find the biggest selection of Seto goods – Setomaa Handicraft shop- a gift shop offering locally made handicrafts, as well as books, souvenirs, food, and more.

The museum also has a restaurant called Seto Tsäimaja, where you can enjoy authentic Seto food and different daily specials, such as cold soup, thick porridge, and sõir (a traditional Seto cheese).
