Turku is a city on the southwest coast of Finland at the mouth of the Aura River, in the region of Southwest Finland. Turku, as a town, was settled during the 13th century and founded most likely at the end of the 13th century, making it the oldest city in Finland. It quickly became the most important city in Finland, a status it retained for hundreds of years. After Finland became part of the Russian Empire (1809) and the capital of the Grand Duchy of Finland was moved to Helsinki (1812), Turku continued to be the most populous city in Finland until the end of the 1840s, and it remains a regional capital and an important business and cultural center.
Because of its long history, it has been the site of many important events, and has extensively influenced Finnish history. Along with Tallinn, the capital city of Estonia, Turku was designated the European Capital of Culture for 2011. In 1996, it was declared the official Christmas City of Finland.
Due to its location, Turku is a notable commercial and passenger seaport with over three million passengers traveling through the Port of Turku each year to Stockholm and Mariehamn.

  • The museum is beautiful on it's own, the exhibitions were interesting too. On display are some of the most well-known Finnish art pieces. I also enjoyed the museum cafe.

  • Very interesting and varied exhibitions in the museum. Even the modern art was very nicely-made, and it was clear that a lot of effort went into every piece. My personal favourite was the wooden fox.
  • Beautiful small modern art museum with mainly Finnish artists, good exhibitions. Coffee shop is really nice and so are the gardens around.
  • Beautiful building, great interior, love the woodwork, great collection of art and rotating modern art work.
  • Beautiful Art Nouveau details in interior. Interesting collection of art.
  • Very nice building and displays some of the finest Finnish paintings.
