About
The 19th Century Citizen’s Museum is located in the old part of Tartu, in a unique neighbourhood where the buildings are among the oldest in the city. The wooden dwelling, completed in the 1740s, is one of the oldest to have survived in Tartu. Visitors find themselves in the home of a middle-class citizen in the 1830s. The living room, dining room, study and bedroom are furnished in the Biedermeier style characteristic of the period. In the cosy kitchen at the heart of the house are a number of utensils and a fully functional ‘English’ stove.

When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

After ERM, this was our favorite museum to visit. The tour guide was so knowledgeable. Great little piece of history preserved in Tartu.

19th Century Tartu Citizen's Home Museum is really worth visiting. I recommend to ask more questions (employees have really good vibe there), and they also have a self-guide to look deeper into the 19th Century living.

Very interesting place about everyday life of Tartu citizen in early 19th century but also very small. There are only few rooms. It looks like that there lived only one person, there are only one small bedroom with single bed. However, it is interesting to find about the way of life in that time. You could see Biedermeier furniture, kitchen and few paintings on the way. There is also one parrot in the cage as well. Entrance fee is 4 euros.

Was here only about a half hour but visit was worthwhile. A full English booklet is provided detailing Tartu's and the house's history, as well as descriptions on the rooms' decorations. Pleasant staff members.
