Amos Anderson Art Museum Tours

The Amos Anderson Art Museum is the largest private exhibition in Finland. It was founded in 1965 by Amos Anderson, who was then editor of the local newspaper Hufvudstadsbladet and also a determined businessman and patron of the arts. Today, it is maintained by the arts foundation, Föreningen Konstsamfundet. The museum specializes in Finnish art from the 20th and 21st centuries and the collection includes paintings, drawings, prints and photographs, as well as textiles, furniture, glass and ceramic objects. While some of the earlier works date back to the personal collection of Amos Anderson, today the museum focuses on acquiring modern and contemporary art. 

Some of the most beloved paintings in the museum include Adoration of the Magi by Francesco Bassano, View of Fiesöle by Alfred Finch and Fantasy by Tove Jansson. They are all housed in Amos Anderson’s erstwhile private home, which was converted into a museum after his death. The display includes several rooms of Amos Anderson’s home and his private chapel and there is also a small café and museum shop located on the ground floor. However, the museum has announced that it plans to move to a new location at Lasipalatsi plaza around 2018.
