Tartu Art Museum

Tartu Art Museum is an open and welcoming museum, full of exciting encounters with new and old art from the 20th and 21st centuries. Tartmus builds bridges between the past and the present and speaks to contemporary people on important topics. Tartmus was founded in 1940 to collect, preserve, and promote contemporary art.
Tartmus is located in a crooked house in Tartu Town Hall Square, built in 1793. The house has been slanted by 5.8 degrees due to the banks of the marshy River Emajõgi. This means that the house is more tilted than the Pisa Tower. The art collections and the professional library are located at Rüütli 23.

  • Exhibit on local art more interesting than I expected

    The Estonian cultural renaissance between the wars included a circle of starving artists in Tartu. Some of their preserved work was clever. Some was just their homework from art classes.

  • Great to learn about Estonian art

    Great museum, architectural pearl (Tartu own Pisa tower), nice collection of Estonian art. When you are done, don't miss the small shop on the first floor!

  • Loved the Pallas exhibition!

    The Pallas exhibition was really interesting and enjoyable! There were plenty of famous but also many less known art works. Lovely experience and would like to go back in the future. Definitely would...
