Tartu City Museum is a great place for an exciting educational experience. There is a lot to see and discover in the museum. Exhibitions display archaeological finds from the Middle Ages (incl. Venetian beakers), the handiwork of local silversmiths, the table where the Tartu Peace Treaty was signed, a scale model of pre-WWII Tartu and more. Also, the exhibition hall in Early Classical style is a gem in its own right.

Groups are welcome to book a guided tour in the museum or a guided walk.

Note: Parking in the museum’s courtyard is free.
