ESTONIA - Saaremaa

Viki village, Mihkli Farm Museum
Mihkli farm depicts a typical West Saaremaa farm. Most of the buildings date to the middle of the 18th century. Almost all of the items on display have been made by the six generations of family who lived here. The farm consists of a family dwelling (the log house with no foundation), a threshing barn/dwelling, a "wheel house" where woodowrk was carried on and the farm's wheeled wagons were stored, a smithy, a summer kitchen, two storage barns, and a smoke sauna. A windmill is located a few hundred meters distant.
