There are 13 museums in Pärnu County, which is more than enough to guarantee that it is worth it to visit us.
Nowadays, museums offer, in addition to an overview of the local history, several cultural and leisure events and festivals.
The Pärnu Museum is the largest one in Pärnu Count. It was established in 1895 by an association that studied museums (Pärnu Muuseumiuurimise Selts). From 1944 to the spring of 2012, the Pärnu Museum was located at 4 Aia Street. On 25 May 2012, the museum was moved to a granary from the 19th century, which is located next to Pärnu River (3 Aida Street). A branch of the Pärnu Museum, Lydia Koidula Memorial Museum is located in the Ülejõe district in Pärnu (37 Jannseni Street) in a school building from mid-19th century.
