New museum in Tartu aims for MICE success

Estonian National Museum to open in Tartu in autumn
New, wide-ranging, high-quality exhibitions are promised at the Estonian National Museum, due to open in the country’s second city and university town Tartu this coming autumn. The building also aims to be an interesting choice for the meetings industry.
The museum will be “a museum of cultures which preserves the story of Estonia’s nation, people and folk and talks about peoples of the world”, it has been revealed.
The new building centres around two permanent exhibitions – a “dynamic Estonian exhibition” telling the story of the Estonian people and people who have lived on Estonian soil and also one about the Finno-Ugric peoples of northern Eurasia. There will also be temporary exhibitions on cultures and art projects from around the world.
In addition, the new building will contain a multifunctional conference centre and cinema halls, a library, training centre, restaurant and cafés.
The first international conference has been confirmed – the 19th Conference and General Assembly of the International Bobbin Lace and Needle Lace Organisation, to take place at the museum in 2020.
