Night of Museums 2018 at Viljandi Old Water Tower

At the Night of Museums, the water tower is opened for visitors from 6 p.m. to 11 p.m. for free.

At the Viljandi Water Tower, you can see the interactive audio, light and video installation of multimedia students of the visual technology studies of the Viljandi Culture Academy of Tartu University. In the tower, students are trying to create a system that takes the viewer into a virtual world that can be entered and influenced. Nobody can undergo exactly the same emotion as others and it's a once in a lifetime experience.

One can also enjoy the exhibition "Painting Landscape". The works of prop and stage design students of the Viljandi Culture Academy of Tartu University have been completed in decorative painting classes, where the synergy of different colours and painting techniques is learned.

The permanent exhibition introduces the story of the construction and renovation of the old water tower. The visitor has the opportunity to take a look at Viljandi at the beginning of the 20th century through the airplane window and get acquainted with the colourful personalities of some local aviation activists of that time.
