Turku Art Museum is small and cosy. You can pop in Friday afternoon after 17:00 for a free visit. It wont take you more than an hour, but you will enjoy it. And be back.

There were two floors in the museum. If I got it right, the lower floor had the changing exhibition and the upper floor the permanent one. Let's start with the permanent one. I think that it mainly had modern art, but also some classics. The lower floor had Emil Wickströms, who is a famous Finnish sculptor, works. I love them!... More

The Turku Art Museum has a few larger exhibitions annually as well as a good selection of Finnish older and contemporary art. The building itself is wonderful and worth a visit.

I went to Turku Art Museum to see Max Walter Svanberg´s art. The paintings were wonderful but the museum itself is also worth visiting. It´s a beautiful building an a hill surrounded by a wonderful garden.

The permanent collection has some of the best Finnish paintings from 1800 and 1900 centuries. The building itself is beautiful, a national romantic granite building from 1904, the second building in Finland to have been designed specifically as a museum, situated in the centre but on a top of a hill.

Old capitals main art museum. "Must" place to be if you are a Finnish or just intrested of art. But art is 100% from old Finnish artists, (exept changing expo), so if you are not and big fan of art, just pick the castle or Wäinö Aaltonen museum. Building is beautiful and full of history.
