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.

  • A great location in a nice Art Museum. Students particularly useful (only in 2e). Film noir themed participatory Museum experience operating model was fun to and functionally connected to the art collection.

  • Zoltan Popovits, excellent exhibition until January 9, 2017. You still have time! 'Regular collection' also available, remember to visit.
  • 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.
  • Awesome place! Very interesting Art Museum in heart of Helsinki!
  • I enjoyed the visit, some good pieces
