Project Beetroot Washing Machine is a combined exhibition project by Tartu City Museum, Estonian Road Museum and Estonian Agricultural Museum, about DIY, reuse, inventions and resourcefulness from the Soviet times to today. 
This project participates in the first Tartu 2024 culture and education programme development process, as a part of "Tartu with Humanity" programme line. Projects that successfully complete the process will advance to the official European Capital of Culture programme.

The goal of the exhibition is to reveal the history of mundane do-it-yourself activities and their importance today. During the exhibition project, other science and audience programme events will be held as well.
