Tartu Old Observatory

TripAdvisor Traveler Rating

Tartu Old Observatory, which used to be one of the world's most important centres of astronomy, is a pearl among the Estonian research facilities. Here, you can enjoy a comprehensive permanent exhibition about the research of astronomy and space, admire the world's best telescope and the Arabic Globe, count the falling meteors, and learn about the constellations. In 2005, its Struve Geodetic Arc was added to the UNESCO World Heritage list. The Old Observatory is a branch of the University of Tartu Museum.  Bring your family and friends and come visit us!
