The Auto Museum via Baltica E67 is located at Halinga in Estonia, near he E67 joining Tallin to Pärdu. It is a private museum founded by Peeter Kalli, with the intention of giving a small overview of the history of the automobile in Estonia as part of the world history of the automobile.


In total, around 70 cars are on display in this collection, which Peeter Kalli regularly expands. With the dissolution of the Soviet Union, a very large car industry with its interesting models also went down in history, many brands disappeared or were bought out and the models were renewed. In the Halinga Automobile Museum, the focus is on cars made in the Soviet Union from the 1950s to the 1980s.

The museum is therefore one of the largest in this field in the European Union and offers the opportunity to discover brands and cars that are little known to most enthusiasts, such as GAZ, Moskvich, VAZ or ZAZ. In a planned production system, each brand had its specialty. At the entry level, ZAZ built the 965 inspired by the Fiat 600 and then the 966 inspired by the NSU Prinz, still rear-engine, Moskvich was in charge of small and medium-sized cars, with the 400 series inspired by Opel or Ford, VAZ (known in Western Europe as the Lada brand) offered the 2100 series based on the Fiat 124.

GAZ offered larger models for executives and nomenklatura, including the Chaika and Volga range. The museum exhibits current production models, as well as rarer cars from the Soviet era, such as a Moskvich 400 convertible from 1950 or a 412 Rally from 1974.

But in Halinga, there are not only cars from the Soviet industry, there are also many European and American cars: 1942 Packard One-Eighty, 1959 Cadillac, 1953 Jaguar XK-120, 1953 Morgan 4+, Austin-Healey, 1959 Rolls Royce Silver Cloud, 1987 Volvo 780 Coupé and several Mercedes-Benz.

Besides cars

A few motorcycles and sidecars from Eastern European productions complete the mobility landscape of the Soviet era. The museum has a shop with miniatures, posters and metal plaques, coffee available at the museum and ample parking.
