University of Tartu Museum

  Lossi 25      +372 737 56 74     15 Jun 2022
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. On June 29, the museum opens a new exhibition "Heaps of happiness!? An exhibition on well-being, mental health, and balance". The exhibition explores what makes people happy and highlights issues of mental health and coping. We share practical tips for concentrating on our positive inner strength and make conscious efforts towards a better life.
