Welcome to the homes of art lovers! The Kirpilä Art Collection from the late 1970s showcases Finnish art on the top floor of a building in Töölö. The Amos Anderson Art Museum provides a view of the early 20th century businessman’s home, as well as gems from his 250-piece collection, the museum’s basic collection and various temporary exhibitions.
 
Rheumatologist Juhani Kirpilä began collecting art during his student years in the 1950s. Amos Anderson was a multi-industrial businessman who was active in publishing and politics. While Kirpilä was focused on collecting art, Anderson was an art patron.
 
Kirpilä bequeathed his home and the 534-piece collection to the Finnish Cultural Foundation. Anderson’s collection was inherited by the Föreningen Konstsamfundet, which he founded in order to support the culture of Swedish-speaking Finns.
 
The collections include mainly paintings, as well as sculptures and medals. Did you know that one of the homes also houses a chapel?
