Communication and Laptop Museum

Mustahamba, Estonia

A small museum showcasing various communication equipment and laptops in the middle of the southeast Estonia countryside. 


This place is probably one of the most remote museums that you can find in Estonia. While getting there, you’ll have to get off the tarmac and enjoy the unpaved and curvy roads of Võru County. Just follow the signs and you’ll be fine.

It’s not a very big museum, but every available inch of space is used to showcase the history of telecommunications in Estonia. It starts from the Soviet occupation era and covers the transition over the 1990s and 2000s as Estonia regained independence. There are also a few ancient laptops around.

The real gem is the owner of the museum, Marko Koemets, whose passionate explanations about all the exhibitions make it a really fun and engaging experience. You’re also free to try out various types of phones that are all connected to each other.

Know Before You Go

Before visiting, check out their website and review the information about opening times, you may need to call ahead to schedule a visit.

On Google Maps, search for "Side ja Laptopi Muuseum" to get the exact location. Don't worry, if you end up on unpaved roads, you're going in the right direction.
