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.

Great museum - with a mix of standard gallery-style presentation, plus rooms made up with funiture, plants and artwork from different periods. These rooms are great as they give the visitor a chance to see how art was meant to be displayed when it was first bought - as an enhancement to a room, rather than to be hung in... More

The family Sinebrychoof were the rich owners of the popular Synebrychoof beer and the collected a little but luxurious collection of furniture and paintings. The best paintings of Finland, I would say: Corot, Watteau, Rembrandt, Lucas Cranach, Renoir...very little museum but very good taste. Expensive however. Helsinki is an expensive city: you must pay for everything.

The home of the Sinebrychoffs features their personal and superbly chosen collection of art and furnishings, along with special exhibitions. We saw the Tiepolo engravings and rarely featured Orthodox icons from several hundred years ago. These require an admission fee, but the masterworks in the rest of the house are free to see. Dutch and Italian masters adorn the walls... More

We visited this free on the Helsinki card. Wouldn't have paid to go in. It was a beautiful old house and had some old paintings. Was ok but not great.

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
