About the museum

The University of Tartu Museum began in 1803 with the establishment of the university’s art museum. During this time, museums in the university have appeared and disappeared, merged and separated, but the main goals have remained unchanged: preserve the academic heritage of the university, educate and enlighten the young and old alike, and tell the history of the University of Tartu as well as the history of world science and art in a thrilling way.
