The non-profit association Saaremaa Sõjavara Selts was established in 2007 by merging several private collections. The main aim of the association was to develop the Military Equipment Museum of Saaremaa into a multifunctional visitor centre introducing wars fought in Estonia during the 20th century. The museum is located in a Soviet-era farm building and the visiting environment is basic, as the association has so far not procured sufficient funding to reconstruct the building. The museum’s collection comprises 12,000 exhibits, and 7,000 of these are on display.
