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.

We really enjoyed a quick Sunday visit to the Sinebrychoff Museum. The old home and furnishings are beautiful and the small art collection included therein is of the highest quality. The entire museum can easily be seen in just over an hour and it is well worth a visit.

The art museum, in the home of a leading C19 brewer, near the centre of Helsinki, illustrates very well how industrialists use their wealth to create something for their memorial, and for greater pleasure. By not being absorbed into a larger 'national collection', this can be savoured on a smaller, more intimate visit. No 'world famous items', but a good... More

Up front....we're into house museums and decorative arts. This house museum is in a pleasant neighborhood overlooking a park that was part of the original estate. The family made its name in the brewery business and were very successful. They built their home and furnished it was taste and style. Mrs. Sinebrychoff was a talented actress and they lived in...

One of the highligts of my recent visit to Helsinki. I really enjoyed the exhibition of Old Russian Masters; I can't remember seeing anything quite similar or ever having had the chance to acquaint myself with these artists or the schools they represent. The building itself and its interiors are also absolutely worthy of note, and you can easily spend... More

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
