University of Tartu Museum

  Lossi 25      +372 737 56 74     30 Jul 2021
One of three branches of the university’s museum (with Art Museum and Old Observatory), the division housed in the city's famous Tartu Cathedral chronicles the history of the university from its founding in 1632 to the present time and also of the building. Its well-presented collection with the fascinating University Treasury, Morgernstern Hall and Parrot’s office brings the story of the institution to life. Little ones will be intrigued by the ‘The Crazy Scientist’s Office' with many hands-on attractions and interactive fun. From May through September, the same ticket will let you climb the cathedral towers for some great city views. Until February 27, 2022 temporary exhibition 'Ars academica. Art Collection of University of Tartu' is on display. The exhibition sheds new light on the works of art that are usually on the walls of lecture halls and offices, seen by professors and students, and displays masterpieces that have not been publicly exhibited for a long time. The exhibition has masterpieces from Renaissance masters like Albrecht Dürer to Estonian contemporary painters.
