The museum operates in the old Hanila schoolhouse, where materials related to Hanila’s history and cultural heritage are collected and displayed.
The preservation of the work and memories of August Tampärg is a duty of honour, as is the appreciation of the old parish school as a cultural memorial. The life’s work of August Tampärg, an honoured citizen of Hanila Rural Municipality, was the preservation of the municipality’s cultural heritage for future generations. Good to know: The permanent ethnographic and cultural exposition consists of several subdivisions – the farmyard, traditional threshing room, and workshop. The main part of the exhibition comprises items from Porsiku Farm that have been preserved over several generations.
