A must for history buffs, this modern museum presents 11,000 years of Pärnu history on two floors, with additional space for temporary exhibitions. The main exhibit shows local developments from Neolithic times right up to the late 1980s, and includes a mini-cinema showing archival films. The institution's pride and joy is the so-called 'Stone Age Madonna'. At around 8,000 years old, it is the oldest known human-shaped sculpture in the Baltic Sea area. Other star attractions include a fragment of a 14th-century merchant ship and a glass floor that lets you look down onto archaeological remnants of one of the town's historic gates. June 19 - September 8 temporary exhibition 'Abandoned Beauty' is on display, exhibition is dedicated to the aesthetics of decay and loss.
