New temporary exhibition “Samovar”

with No Comments

New exhibition “Samovar” from October 16!

The exhibition features samovars from the collections of the Tartu City Museum. The majority of them belonged to Endel Taniloo, but were acquired to the collection of Tartu City Museum in 1981. Most of the samovars selected for the exhibition are made in various Tuula factories, the oldest dating back to the first half of the 19th century. A couple of coffee machines from the 19th century can also be seen.

Samovar was a common item in the wealthy Tartu homes of the 19th century. Samovars are good example on how to create a warm mood for cold autumn.

The exhibition is open Wed–Sun 10am – 3pm until December 1. Entrance with museum ticket.
