Jyväskylä Art Museum

The exhibitions at Jyväskylä Art Museum in 2018 feature Finnish and international contemporary art.  The art museum is located in the city centre, overlooking the Kirkkopuisto park. While small and intimate in size, the museum is known for the high quality of its collections and exhibitions.  The museum experience is designed for the whole family, including a visit to a genuine 1960s home, where the print collection is shown. Check the museum website for more information on the exhibitions and events. We bring art to life through interesting guided tours, talks, workshops, concerts, the Christmas bazaar and much more. The quirky Art Toilets will bring a smile to your face! The museum shop is well-stocked with art equipment, colouring books, cards and other gifts and souvenirs.

The summer exhibition Other Realities is on display from 8 June until 7 October 2018. The immersive ambience of the exhibition is created with works by noted contemporary artists as well as sound and lighting, and Pasi Ilmari Jääskeläinen’s narratives. The exhibition takes the viewer on a journey into a world which is both familiar and unknown. The exhibition includes paintings, sculptures, prints, photographs, drawings, installations and video art mainly from artists either based or associated with Central Finland, Finnish printmakers and photographers and artists featured in the International Print Triennial Graphica Creativa and international triennial of photographic art LUMO.

The Treasures of Orava Family – prints in a 1960’s home

A visit to the former family home of the Orava family is a fun journey in time for the whole family. Sit on the sofa and admire the gems of Finnish printmaking while browsing through magazines. We have prepared fun activity packs for children, available at the museum info desk.

Admission

Adults €6, group ticket €4/person (min.  10 persons). In 2018, we offer free admission to everyone under the age of 24, and on Fridays the museum has free entry for all.
