1896 The Pärnu Museum, founded by the Pärnu Ancient Survey Society, has been located in different places over the years. The most impressive exposition of the Pärnu Museum, "The History of 11,000 Years - Tests from Ancient Times", was opened in 2012 in a new renovated hotel. The display of the Pärnu Museum dates back to the Stone Age, and the past millennia and centuries can be felt through many genuine objects, new knowledge, games and walkways. The permanent exhibition begins with the arrival of the first inhabitants to Pärnu County, who, at the end of the Ice Age, created the settlement of the first known Estonian territory. Findings of this summer's camp site and the rarity of the next few millennia of rare materials include firebricks and early works and gadgets. One of the most exciting examples of the Stone Age period can be considered the oldest human image of Estonia and the entire immediate neighborhood, which was made from the abbey more than 8000 years ago. The Medieval Hall brings to the visitors the world of new opportunities and contacts created by Hansa's trade and prayers. The Baroque display is made up of rare items by the garrison of Pärnu fortress, former lighthouses, trade, and Pärnu University Life (1699-1710). The largest part of the permanent exhibition is devoted to national awakening in the middle of the 19th century, urbanization and the establishment of a republic, which was proclaimed on February 23, 1918 in Pärnu. Attention is also given to the nature resort of Pärnu. The last part of the permanent exhibition focuses on the second half of the 20th century, which is an intriguing reminder of the beginning of occupation and of the forest fellowship. The visitor is transferred to the mood of Soviet life, officially and in the then resort. In addition to replaying history, the museum waits for visitors to the Museum Cafe, which offers pastoral tastes and past experiences. A museum shop is open for local craftsmen and craftsmen.
