Kolga Museum & Manor

Museum in Lahemaa National Park

The photogenically tumbledown, classical-style manor house at Kolga dates from 1642 but was largely rebuilt in 1768 and 1820. It's once again in the hands of the Stenbock family, who owned it from the 17th to the early 20th century, but attempts to restore it have stalled, due to lack of finance. In a neighbouring building, the small local history museum has limited information in English but there’s an interesting display on Bronze Age burials at nearby Lake Kahala.
