Sõru Museum

Museum in Western Hiiumaa

If you've got time to kill before the Saaremaa ferry, this little community museum is worth a look. Downstairs you might find art from the village schoolkids or locally made feltwork, while upstairs there's a permanent display containing the usual black-and-white photos of fisherfolk and farmers, intersperced with old nets and tools. At the very top you can scan the horizon on a heavy-duty set of Soviet border guard binoculars.
