  • For a great price (4 euros for the whole museum) you get three floors of exhibitions, usually being two floors of more modern art and the top floor reserved for classical Estonian art.  more »
  • But it is amazing to see the difference in the socket of this façade, it gives the impression that from one moment to another is going to dump this construction, but there remains.

  • Great location and so must when visiting Tartu. Most important - good curators and no disappointments so far.  more »

  • Tartu Art Museum was founded in 1940, and resides in its current, tilted house on Raekoja plats since 1988. (Btw: don't believe the plaque saying the house is called after Michael Andreas Barclay de Tolly, one of the Russian generals in the war against Napoleon in 1812: it was bought by his widow. Not every historical-looking plaque is trustworthy.) The museum has an extensive collection of Estonian and Baltic German art, largely (yet not only) by artists connected to Tartu, and arranges exhibitions both on the basis of its collection as well as concerning other themes, historical and contemporary, ranging from private collections and collectors to the painful questions of cultural memory to the problems of designing and discusing the public space. Whenever you have time in Tartu, it is definitely a museum worth visiting.
