In 2012, a unique fishing museum was opened in the fishnet shed at the Port of Koguva. All the exhibits are from the farms in the Koguva village, especially from the Tõnise farm, whose owner refused to join a collective farm and kept the doors of his barns locked, so that the property was not taken to a collective farm. The unique interior of the fishnet shed also offers the opportunity to enjoy the menu of the café at the Port of Koguva.

The vessel uisk was a symbol of Muhumaa on Väinameri Sea for almost 1,000 years. The vessel was called huisk before, which meant snake or worm. This word was also used to describe the viking ships of Saaremaa, that attacked the territories of the Bishopric of Riga and took part in raids to Scandinavia. The uisk is probably one of the oldest types of sailing ships in Estonia. The revival and rebuilding of the ancient ship started in Koguva port in 2009. During the project, a traditional uisk vessel will be built, which will be 15 metres long and 5.2 metres wide.
