Not too big,or too small. The art museum has changing exhibitions downstairs and upstairs a collection of masterpieces by Finnish artists. Open rooms, well light and nice place on top of the hill. Definitely worth a visit.

We visited the museum to see the works of Helene Schjerfbeck. This was a good day to visit the museum. The currator of the exhibition has done a good work to put the different paintings together in an interested and great way. I had no clue that she was this great artist and painter. Also the permanent exibition had some... More

There are few art museums in Turku, but if you would ask one from the locals the Turku Art Museum would be the one. It is old building locating next to town center and offers you some pieces of art that cannot be found anywhere else. Even you would not consider you as an art lover you might want to... More

If you're into art, this is absolutely a place to visit. The museum isn't that big, so it won't take you the whole day to visit it and even kids may find it interesting. The standard exhibition contains art from all the major Finnish painters of the 19th century. Furthermore they have high standard special exhibitions, both Finnish as well... More

I've always liked this place. The displays are always very well done and often consist of well-known Finnish artists. This time I went to see the Helene Schjerfbeck exhibition. I really liked it and because it was Turku day when I went there I got a guided tour for free, and the tickets were already cheaper than they usually are... More

This museum includes an archeological exhibit of old Turku which was very interesting. You can walk around the old building remains and learn a lot about the history of the area. Turku is the oldest city in Finland and was the most important for several centuries.

Earlier a private building. One of the few buildings in Turku where the result of old and new part is good looking and functional. New library is another. Finnish art, mostly paintings. Has occasionally some good photography.

Turuntaidemuseo, Curator at Turku Art Museum, responded to this review

Thank you for your review! The museum was designed by Professor Gustaf Nyström and, when it was completed in 1904, it was the second building in Finland to have been designed specifically as an art museum. It has never been a private building. More
