Art, architecture, and nature come together at Didrichsen Art Museum, home to "everything beautiful," as the founders stated upon its opening in 1965. Designed in the Modernist style by architect Viljo Revell, the museum buildings follow the contours of the landscape and sit surrounded by verdant trees. Outside, you can enjoy the sculpture park, filled with works by Henry Moore, Mario Negri, and Bernard Meadows. Inside, discover changing exhibitions of modern and contemporary Finnish and international art as well as cultural-historic exhibitions. The museum also contains some pre-Columbian art from Central and South America.
