Art Museum Museum
Amos Anderson Art Museum is a museum in Helsinki, Finland. It is the largest private art museum in Finland.HistoryThe museum was founded by Amos Anderson, the owner of the Swedish-language Hufvudstadsbladet newspaper and a patron of the arts. In 1913, Anderson commissioned architects W. G. Palmqvist and Einar Sjöström to design a building on Yrjönkatu. The building would function as both Anderson's private living quarters and office space for his businesses. After Anderson's death in 1961, the building was converted into a museum which opened its doors to the public in 1965.Collections and exhibitionsAmos Anderson Art Museum's collections include primarily 20th-century art, with some of the oldest works originally belonging to Amos Anderson's personal collection.

  • Zoltan Popovits, excellent exhibition until January 9, 2017. You still have time! 'Regular collection' also available, remember to visit.
  • Awesome place! Very interesting Art Museum in heart of Helsinki!
  • Loved it! First of all, museum offers a lot of interaction - you are invited to participate in a competition, challenge or a quiz to get a prize (e.g. ticket for another visit, or a book). There are 9 floors in the museum. Enjoyed an exhibition about neo-impressionists: well-explained and presented. Another exhibition - a crime to solve. With a guidebook you are offered to solve a murder of a girl. Interesting concept, weird story.
  • I enjoyed the visit, some good pieces
  • Small gallery, but worth a visit if you are staying locally. I was fortunate to get a quick pre-peak view of the Jean Tiguey exhibition (March 2014 - May 2014), which is worth going to see, this would have enhanced my overall experience, but I had to leave.
