The Virukoda Museum of Prehistoric Art

is a non-commercial institution managed by the Estonian Rock Art Society.

Voluntary work and financial support are necessary ingredients for the Museum to be able to pursue its activities in a correct manner.

The economy of the Museum is based solely on membership fees and donations.

The activities of the Museum:

* Registration and documentation of rock carvings. The work is now being concentrated on the carvings which are disintegrating at an increasing rate.

* International centre for rock art documentation. The museum is the only institution in Northern Europe which offers education in the skill of documenting rock art.

* Archives for rock carvings and documentation material, which are open for researchers and anyone else interested.

* International seminars offering lectures and field work with documentation and registration.

* Courses and excursions arranged individually for groups with special interests.

* Guided tours and night excursions to well-known as well as less known localities of rock carvings.

* Exhibitions
