4.5
#15 of 47 in Museums in Helsinki
Art, architecture, and nature come together at Didrichsen Art Museum, home to "everything beautiful," as the founders stated upon its opening in 1965. Designed in the Modernist style by architect Viljo Revell, the museum buildings follow the contours of the landscape and sit surrounded by verdant trees. Outside, you can enjoy the sculpture park, filled with works by Henry Moore, Mario Negri, and Bernard Meadows. Inside, discover changing exhibitions of modern and contemporary Finnish and international art as well as cultural-historic exhibitions. The museum also contains some pre-Columbian art from Central and South America.

  • Rather small exhibition areas in two floors and numerous rooms. Constantly changing exhibition theme but something permanent as well like sculptures both inside and outside at the garden. Interesting ...  more »
  • Do not get tired to visit with a friend this museum. It is located in the Villa, whose Windows offer a magnificent view of the Gulf of Finland. In addition to familiarize themselves with art in a museum so you can drink a cup of hot coffee/tea in the room with the fireplace, admire the pond. Feeling as if you're visiting a friend, being a lover of art and literature.

  • Be sure to visit Villa Gyllenberg also, if it is open (that museum is not open every day).
  • A small and cozy art museum a little distance from the center of Helsinki. While I wouldn't put it on the must-visit list for Helsinki, I certainly enjoyed my visit. The dock at the back of the museum was nice as well.
  • Excellent little museum with a jaw dropping view of the sea. It hosts regularly painter works that are quite unique.
  • Excellent experience!
  • Really lovely place to visit, refreshing mind and soul
