The collections of the Sinebrychoff Art Museum include some of the most valuable and internationally important paintings by old European masters to be found in Finland. The collections have mainly been made up of donations. The unique house museum of Paul and Fanny Sinebrychoff, a permanent exhibition on the 2nd floor makes up the core of the museum. The art collection of the Sinebrychoffs, including furniture and other artefacts was left to the Finnish government as a bequest in 1921.

The museum houses the best collection of old masters in Finland, and is set in what used to be the home of Fanny and Paul Sinebrychoff who started the collection and donated it to the state. Some of the rooms are still decorated as they were when it was a home, so you get a unique experience of seeing old... More

This is one of my favorite museums in Helsinki. To like it you have to like "old" art. The house itself and partly the furniture on display is also worth noting. A quite small museum not overwhelming and given Finland isn't (and wasn't either before) exactly on the main route of classical art and artists in Europe the collection is... More

Hidden away in plain view in the center of town, this is a portal into another time. The Russian (not Soviet) owner of this fine old house filled it with remarkable antiques, furniture and art. The ghosts of that time and that family seem to be seated at the dining room table, about to take tea. Very nicely curated and... More

Unless you have a passion for Old Masters, I'd give this one a miss. Beautiful house with some of the original furniture but no real sense of how people lived in the house, it's all about the art.

The museum allows you to walk through the stately house of the Sinebrychoff family and view their collection. There are only a few big-name artists here; most of the stuff is courtly painting of the 18th and 19th centuries, minor nobles who nobody knows painted by painters that nobody knows. But they are well laid out and make the rooms... More

Sinebrychoff Art Museum is a small museum at the Punavuori neighborhood of Helsinki near the Sand Bay Square and Market. Its collection includes paintings by some of the world’s well-known painters as well as rooms with “old world” furnishings and other trinkets. There’s really nothing here that has that wow factor, but it’s still a worthy stop. For one, there’s... More

I found this place thanks to TA and I really enjoyed it. I was completely empty when I went on a Saturday but I really liked the visit. It gives you a sense for the style and domestic interiors of a wealthy family. There are also several very nice art works including a Cranach I liked. When I visited there... More
