The museum is located in the Uue-Varbla Manor. The exhibition of the museum portrays the history of Varbla rural municipality and the local everyday life during the first half of the last century. The museum also includes a handicraft room and the "book attic" of Karl Ristikivi, a writer from Varbla. In the manor's granary, you can see old tools and machines. The manor's wooden main building, built in 1797, represents the early classicist style and is a unique sight in its own right.
The museum was founded as a private initiative and functions as a non-profit association under the leadership of the Kask family. A traditional handicraft fair is also organised.
