This aristocratic residence on the banks of the Ülejõe River dating from the late 18th century is worthy of note for its original interior, which has been fully preserved. Adjacent to its Louis XVI style grand hall on the main floor you will find the exhibition 'Dorpat. Jurjev. Tartu', which provides a wealth of detail on the colourful history of the city.

Highlighted from different periods of Tartu's past are the medieval brick structures of Dorpat, the ruins that remain from the time of the Livonian War and the spiritual life of that era, 18th century handicraft and the background to signing of the Tartu Peace Treaty.
