Since 1878 local activities for studying the history of Viljandi and its neighbourhood have been carried out. Born on that ground, the Museum of Viljandi has become the major centre for the history of Viljandi County. We attempt to present the information gathered during a century and to be a partner for those searching their way into the interesting world of the past.
Exhibitions are located in an old pharmacy with a permanent exhibition on two floors presenting the history of Viljandi county, temporary exhibitions are also held. More on Visitestonia.com
