How to get here?

Eesti Muuseumraudtee

Estonian Museum Railway is located at the Pärnu county in the south-western part of Estonia, 17 km’s from Pärnu to north-west in Lavassaare settlement between the bogs. There are three possibilities to reach us:


To go from Tallinn via Pärnu-Jaagupi and Vahenurme

turning right at Tallinn-Pärnu road to Pärnu-Jaagupi;


To go via Nurme and Jõõpre

turning right at Tallinna-Pärnu road before the bridge of Sauga River;


To go from Pärnu via Audru and Jõõpre.

The last way is the longest from Tallinn but it is the best being the only entirely paved road.
