MANIJA KÜLAKESKUS, Manija küla, Pärnu
Manija, the second largest island in Pärnu County, is only 4.5 km in length and 0.5 km in width. The entire island is covered by the Manija landscape protection area, which was established in 1991. The island’s nature is special thanks to the growth of rare plants, coastal meadows filled with the singing of coastal birds, and the loud sound of natterjack toads. The erratic boulders on the island are also objects of the ancient nature.

There is a permanent exhibition on the ground floor of the museum, which gives an overview of the culture and history of the people of Manija. There is a traveling exhibition hall on the first floor. Crafts and souvenirs can be bought on site.
