Academic Historical Museum

The University’s historical collection is housed in the Academic Historical Museum. The museum is situated in the Academy Building.

The museum has a collection of objects, photos and documentation about the history of the University and student life. A stroll through the building brings the history of the University to life in a unique way.

Access to the archives

The Academic Historical Museum is open during office hours, although not all rooms in the Academy Building are open to visitors. Guests and visitors of inaugural lectures and PhD defences can see the inside of the building during such ceremonies. We regret that we cannot provide guided tours. The Academy Building does have an archive that can be visited by appointment. Please contact the curator of the Academic Historical Museum.
