The exhibition hall is the old(well fairly modern!) Communist HQ and has been sort of adapted. I've been to much better shows.

We have been visiting the Pärnu Museum of New Art for decades now, and it feels as if some new energy needs to be applied there. The building - appreciating it does not belong to the Museum - is not getting the level of maintenance it should, the interior design even if delibaretly having a post-soviet feel an touch actually distracts visitors from enjoying the very modern art in the exhibition rooms. Please accept my apologies for complaining, but we used to get better vibes from there in the past.

We went to this museum as we were walking around Parnu and looking for some activities and things to see and do and this was basically on our path. We paid our admission and asked which way to go. They pointed us in one direction which was some sort of permanent local art exhibit going up the stairs. It didn't seem like much of a museum.

Then at the last minute I walked through the small gift shop which led to a larger exhibit hall which had the Nude Art Exhibit (and any other exhibits they have I guess). Anyway that was a reasonable space for exhibiting art and the exhibit was a nice exhibit for a museum in a town like Parnu.

I am sure they do have a lot of interesring exibitons throughout the year but the one we went to was quite full of naked people and not much to see, just a few pieces were interesting. Anyway the price is realy cheap 2 euro for students and 4 for adults so one time visit is completely fine.

Hello! Thank you for review. You visited the 24th International Nude Art Exhibition
MAN WOMAN AND THE SEA.
The nude art exhibition of this summer in Pärnu, traditionally, focuses on the harmony of human body and soul.
Every summer the exhibition has its sub-theme. Either expectations, dreams, aliens or something else trying to hit different tones in the relationships between men and women through various artistic interpretations.
In connection with the expected 100th anniversary of our republic and our neighbouring countries Finland, Latvia, Lithuania and Poland the Museum of New Art pays more attention than ever to the art of the Baltic Sea countries.
So our XXIV International Nude Art exhibition in 2017 is named MAN, WOMAN AND THE SEA. The Baltic Sea connects artists from nine countries and next to them we have invited guests from Iceland.

A lovely little gallery close to the centre. Themed displays of modern art from Estonia and beyond are changed regularly. If you are offended by nudity, try somewhere else. We've been twice!
