Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

This was the most unexpected and brilliant exhibition I have been to in Estonia during these days. XXX International Exhibition of Men and Women was so fascinating! Lots of quality work and the way how the museum is settled is also superb. I am grateful for finding this spot for visit while in Parnu.

Nothing special, although the drawings of the Ukrainian children are great. Don’t go to the toilet, it’s probably the most disgusting place you ever saw! And: they don’t speak English! 🤔

The exhibition was small but interesting. Would be great though if the staff were friendly and ready to answer questions. As a visitor to the museum I was made to feel uncomfortable for asking basic questions.

We spent an hour looking on two expositions there. Not much to see, but ok if you want a little bit of art during your stay in Pärnu. There is a small gift shop.

I went to the Museum of New Art specifically to see the photo exhibit of Kaupo Kikkas. For the seniors' rate of 2 euros, it was a great bargain. I think full adult price was 4 euros. After a few smaller rooms, one enters a wonderfully sunlit room that led to another large room with the exhibit. On a Sunday morning, there were no crowds. The exhibits will change over time, but for the price, a great place to visit.

The Esplanade street Art museum has been there forever, at least in terms of Pärnu were things tend to change pretty fast. But not this place, it is still up and running after whatever challenges have been thrown at its existence. The only staff member I have seen there during my last few visits (usually weekends, though) is perhaps not the friendliest one in the world, but I have always managed to secure a ticket so actually it is OK.
The temporary exhibitions tend to be semi-international, often some Estonian new art mixed with some other European, sometimes world Art. Usually a realistic status statement on some niche art trend, totally enjoyable and a good option for a rainy day. I, for one, keep visiting as long as they let me in. Thanks to everybody supporting the Museum!

The exhibition has one or two interesting artworks but the curating is very poor indeed. Where other museums have moved with the times this one definitely hasn’t.

The exhibition hall is old and not immpresive at all. I've been to much better shows. Not worth to pay 4 euros and waist your time.
