A safe visit to the museum

From 9 August, visitors of the University of Tartu Museum must present a certificate to prove vaccination against Covid-19, recovery from this disease or a negative test result. This requirement does not apply to children and young people under the age of 18.

At the ticket office, all visitors from the age of 18 need to present a valid certificate proving one of the following:

  • completed vaccination;

  • recovery from COVID-19;

  • a negative PCR test result (test taken by a medical specialist less than 72 hours ago); or

  • a negative result of a rapid antigen test (test taken by a medical specialist less than 48 hours ago).

Please also bring an identity document, as the certificate is only valid with it. No testing is carried out at the museum.

In addition, we ask you to sanitise your hands upon entry to the building and keep a safe distance from other visitors. Hand sanitisers are available throughout the museum. Wearing a mask is also encouraged.

Please visit the museum only when healthy.
