The Long House
Until the mid-20th century, the main building of the Hiiumaa Museum was a dwelling for directors of the Hiiu-Kärdla textile factory (the factory was destroyed in a fire during WW II). Among locals, the house was known as the Long House (Pikk Maja). Built in the 1830-40s, the over 60-meter building is the longest wooden house in Kärdla to this day. During the Soviet years, the building housed various municipal offices, such as the local department of education and a library, and served as a civil building facilitating festive marriage ceremonies.
In the museum you can see one big and several smaller temporary exhibitions all year round.
Museum is closed in national holidays.
