Specializing in European art from the 14th to the 19th century, Sinebrychoff Art Museum is the only museum of its kind in Finland. Part of the Finnish National Gallery together with Ateneum Art Museum and the Museum of Contemporary Art Kiasma, Sinebrychoff displays an important collection of paintings by Old Masters including Rembrandt and Goyen.
Housed in a mansion dating back to 1842, much of the furnishings are original and give an insight into the lives of Finland’s upper classes during the 19th century.
A popular place to spend a morning or an afternoon, Sinebrychoff has a good collection of Dutch and Flemish artworks from before 1830. Sinebrychoff also has a large display of miniatures, porcelains, and sculptures dating back to classical antiquity.
The museum hosts a rolling collection of temporary exhibitions, generally at no extra charge. Often, the temporary exhibitions are dedicated to modern art, providing an interesting juxtaposition of old and new in the 19th-century house.
Located on Bulevardi 40, Sinebrychoff Art Museum is close to Aleksanterin Teatteri railway station. Closed on Mondays, the museum is open from 10am-6pm on Tuesdays and Fridays, 10am - 8pm on Wednesdays and Thursdays, and from 10am-5pm on Saturdays and Sundays. Admission is 10 EUR, with free admission on the first Wednesday evening of each month.
