|About the Museum||The Helsinki City Art Museum is about to enter a new era with the premises in the Tennis Palace quadrupling its total exhibition space. The Art Museum will have museum galleries in Meilahti and the Tennis Palace, showing a wide variety of exhibitions, while the Kluuvi gallery continues as a venue for showcasing experimental art by young contemporary artists.
At the Tennis Palace the Helsinki City Art Museum is in close vicinity of numerous important art museums and galleries. Art-lovers will appreciate its convenient location in the city centre. On the other hand, the cinemas and restaurants of the Tennis Palace will bring new visitors to the Museum and offer fresh perspectives to designing exhibitions. What is more, coexistence in adjoining galleries with the Museum of Cultures offers an opportunity which is rare, even internationally, for both the Museums and their visitors.
|Museum Collections||There are about four hundred outdoor sculptures, environmental works and historical monuments in Helsinki. The oldest works date from the late 19th Century, and there are some individual monuments that are of an even earlier provenance.
While the works in the parks, streets, and squares of the city all belong to the collections of the Helsinki City Art Museum, the Museum website also features public works owned by the state, private companies, and individuals.
