Aboa Vetus & Ars Nova, Turku
Categories: Ruins, Art Museums, Museums, Tourist Spots
Walk through the ruins of Finland's oldest city while at the same time viewing pieces of modern art at Aboa Vetus & Ars Nova, a museum of history and contemporary art. At its inception in the 1990s, the institution was meant to host only contemporary art. However, when the builders accidentally discovered an ancient town below ground, the world received this unconventional venue. Ask for a guided tour of the site to get a comprehensive overview of the collections, or walk through the medieval cellars and eccentric exhibit halls at your own pace. You will see works by masters such as Picasso and Warhol, as well as artwork by Finnish artists of the 20th century.

Ars Nova is tastefully put together an art exhibition where you should take the time for a great rakennuksenkin. One is a good practice to give a special mention to AulaCafelle, maybe one of the nicest places to sit back in the comfort of the Aura river in the context of the visit of the city.show original
Bra historisk utställning om Åbo, med möjlighet till såväl läsning som interaktivitet. Också kul att det gamla blandas med modern konst på ett spännande sätt.Good history of Turku, with the ability to both read as interactivity. Also funny that the old mixed with modern art in an exciting way.show original
This is a great museum. I like that it had two parts and it was pretty interesting.
The underground dig site is cool but also small and not too impressive. The upstairs exhibits are always changing but they are usually very nice.
Highly recommend the jazzbrunch on Saturdays
