Museum of New Art

Top choice in Western Estonia & the Islands

Pärnu's former Communist Party headquarters now houses one of Estonia's edgiest cultural spaces, established in 1992 as the country's first museum of contemporary art. Pushing the cultural envelope, it stages an international nude art exhibition every summer, and exhibits over 600 works of contemporary art. Every June it hosts the Pärnu Film Festival, a celebration of documentary work founded by filmmaker Mark Soosaar.
