The University of Tartu Museum operates in three landmark buildings in the centre of Tartu and offers opportunities to organise various events – both in the cathedral’s premises and in the art museum and the observatory.
University of Tartu Museum
The premises of the University of Tartu Museum formerly housed a library and a church, making it an event venue with a special atmosphere. Three rooms can be rented in the cathedral.
University of Tartu Art Museum
The charming rooms of the art museum on the first floor of the university’s main building have a special Pompeian-style interior inspired by antiquity. The art museum offers rooms for rent that are perfect for book launches, post-conference gatherings, receptions, Christmas parties and much more.
The Old Observatory
The Old Observatory was once one of the most important global astronomy centres. It is also the location of one of the measurement points of the Struve Geodetic Arc, which has been on the UNESCO World Heritage List since 2005. The observatory’s rooms are perfect for organising birthday parties, receptions and seminars for smaller groups.
