About
Lydia Koidula (1843–1886) was a famous poetess and publicist during the national awakening of Estonia who spent her youth in Parnu. The memorial museum works in the house that was her home from 1850 to 1863. It is known as Parnu Ulejoe Schoolhouse where her father JV Jannsen, who is also the father of journalism in the Estonian language, worked at the time as the schoolmaster. Your can learn about their lives and activities in the context of national awakening in Estonia, take a look at a typical school and home from the middle of the 19th century and find out about the start of Estonian journalism (Perno Postimees from 1857).

Cute little house with great Estonian history

As a person who grew up with knowing who Lydia Koidula and Johann V. Jannsen are, it is truly great museum about their life, success and work. But who don't know them, you should visit it anyway - those are the people who made Estonian language as it is today.

Interesting little museum
Jun 2018 • Couples
This little museum is dedicated to the life and works of estonian national poet and newspaperwoman Lydia Koitula. It provides a good idea of her life and career in late 19th century.

There are informational booklets in several languages, unfortunately though you may get the most out of personal guidance if you know at least a little bit estonian.

When in Pärnu, then I truly suggest to find this perfectly sized museum. Not too small and definitely not too big, just perfect to take you on a short time travel journey:)
