University of Tartu Sights and Museums
A number of historical university buildings have become symbols of the academic spirit that established its presence in Tartu when the university was founded, and are today part and parcel of the image of Tartu as a city. The University of Tartu invites all visitors to take a walk down its history lane - to see the university's exciting museum expositions and to visit its historical buildings and other sights.
NB! Explore the university via virtual tour!
The virtual tour will take the visitor to the main building of the university and its art museum, history museum, natural history museum, library and botanic gardens.
The tour allows one to rise up to the tower basis of Tartu Dome Cathedral, admire the plants of the tropical Palm House in the Botanic Gardens and study photo collections of the university's history and science.
The visitor can also virtually experience the Old Anatomical Theatre, see memorials or monuments of the people related to the university, take a walk in the beautiful Toome Hill and other city center locations. Tartu Old Observatory will be added to the tour this spring after its renovation works are finished.
The 360-degree tour was created by OÜ VirtuaalStuudio.
