Iisaku Parish Museum

At Iisaku Museum, you will see a piece of a rod-knitted glove, found on the bracelet of a Votic woman, buried at the end of the 13th century or at the beginning of the 14th century in the Jõuga burial mound. It is the oldest rod-knitwear found in Europe.
The building used to house a ministry school and now, it provides an overview of the rural life, farm tasks, activities of masters, history of local firefighting, and the unique nature of Alutaguse. The teachers’ apartment, situated on the first floor, gives an overview of the life of an official at the beginning of the 20th century. The exposition introducing the locals of Iisakumaa is especially wonderful.
We invite you to participate in many exciting educational programmes.
