“The University of Our Lives”


“The University of Our Lives” is the permanent exhibition at Tartu University History Museum. The unique atmosphere of Morgernstern Hall is created by interior designer Mari Kurismaa, graphic stylist Mari Kaljuste. The topic of the exhibition states: where does a university’s distinctiveness, its soul lie? The spirit of universitas influences the annals of science and our everyday life more than we realizse on a daily basis. It can even be argued that without the university, there would be no Estonians or Estonian state today. Our task was to create hands-on and interactive exhibits offering knowledge and surprises.
