Treasury

Discover the University through its valuables!

The Treasury is an exciting and mysterious room at the museum. It invites you to get to know all the different sides of the University of Tartu. 

On 12th April 2017 a new exhibition will be opened at the Treasury. "The Glory of the Cathedral" takes a look at the impressive Cathedral and its archeological heritage. You can admire valuable fabrics found from the Cathedral and also skeletons that tell stories about the habits, everyday lives and concerns of the highly respected clergymen.

The first exhibition at the Treasury was dedicated to numerous valuables that have played an important role in the history of the University. Some objects are valuable due to the ideas that they carry, others for their extraordinaire, age, innovative nature or cultural-historical background.

These rare gems reflect the diverse and colourful world of the Academia and the spirit of Universitas.
