Alvar Aalto Museum
Central Finland is a treat for museum lovers. It has museums to suit every taste – museums that allow visitors to participate. Nationally significant museums in Jyväskylä include the Craft Museum of Finland, the Aviation Museum of Central Finland, the Alvar Aalto Museum and the National Costume Centre of Finland. Come and experience the museums of the Jyväskylä Region – you will learn, be amazed and enjoy yourself!
For art lovers, Jyväskylä offers traditional art galleries, permanent and changing exhibitions at the Jyväskylä Art Museum, exhibitions in bars and restaurants in the spirit of the underground, annual exhibitions by students, amateurs and professional artists as well as alternative ways to present and display art. Äkkigalleria, for example, defines itself as a “nomadic art gallery space”, challenging our notions of enjoying art.
