The Kuressaare episcopal castle, also known just as the Kuressaare Castle, was built in the 14th century. Today, the castle houses the Saaremaa Museum. The permanent exhibition about the history of Saaremaa is in the cloister of the upper floor and in two big halls. The permanent exhibition of contemporary history is made up of two parts. The exhibition "Saaremaa 1939–49", finished in 2005, is in the three halls of the north-eastern wing of the Castle. The exhibition "Saaremaa 1950–94", finished in 2011, is on the four floors of the Defence Tower. The department of Natural History of the Saaremaa Museum shows the bedrock, climate, coast, animals and birds of Saaremaa.
