The museum presents the history of Tartu University from the foundation to the present. Historical equipment and precious instruments represent the history of science. Student life throughout the centuries is also a topic.
To understand Tartu's history and culture, a visit to this museum is the key.
The seat of the msueum is the former choir of the cathedral on top of Toome hill. After the university's refoundation in 1802 the ruin of the choir was repaired and refurbished for the university library. When the library moved into a larger building it became museum.
The beautiful halls, ornated in neogothic style, are also used for conventions and concerts.
See the website for up to date information about opening hours, entrance fees, guided tours and events.
