MUSEUM, ARCHITECTURE, SCULPTURE PARK
The Didrichsen Art Museum was born out of the love for art. The modern building was designed by architect Viljo Revell and it is located by the sea on Kuusisaari island in western Helsinki. The museum is surrounded by a sculpture park that is always open for public.
EXHIBITIONS AND COLLECTIONS
The collection consists of around one thousand items, comprising Finnish and international twentieth-century art, as well as examples from ancient Asian and Latin American cultures
« We hope that our little museum will remain the home of everything beautiful: art, architecture, nature and music and that it will give others as much joy as it has given us »
– Marie-Louise and Gunnar Didrichsen, 1968
