This museum primarily shows how the post-impressionist period inspired contemporary Finnish artists. It had a special exhibition on two floors which was closed shortly before our visit. And the museum itself closes in sept 2017 to open in a new building in 2018.

I have visited this museum many times, when they have some special exhibitions. This time I was here to see their own collections. The museum is owned and maintained by the association Föreningen Konstsamfundet. The museum is located in the apartment building Amos Anderson (1878–1961) had had built for himself in 1913. The building was posthumously converted into a modern... More

Finnish art as collected by the name-giver -- respectable quality, but not really exciting. The museum, which claims to have the largest private collection in Finland, also hosts temporary exhibitions.

I came across one of the most intriguing and creative exhibits ever in a museum. One of the curators has arranged art to depict a fictional murder story that takes place in Helsinki in the 1930s. There is a well written narrative that goes along with it as you follow the story and the exhibit. There is even an epilogue!... More

This is a quite small museum with a relatively conservative collection. Modern art too modern for my taste. Allow two hours.

Amos had several very different type of exhibitions: - Traditional style from their own collections - Helsinki noir - painting from Helsinki collected together with murder mystery to be solved by visitors - Stuart Wrede exhibition, larger installations. There was plenty to see and due to different style of exhibitions there was something for everyone presented.

This museum lets you explore the private collection of a wealthy businessman as well as parts of his apartment with period furniture. For me, the highlight was the chapel with its 15th century religious art. There's also a collection of paintings by 20th century local artists (as far as I'm able to judge, this is chiefly of local interest). Interestingly,... More

So exciting exhibition of Stuart Wrede, The Garden of Life. Sculptures made of ice, water, stone...!!! Also the Sigurd Frosterus collection and especially pointillist paintings by Finch were beautiful.

This museum has a mystery story which is told partially in a small booklet, and partially told via the art installations and paintings found in the museum. This was the most creative and fun experience I have found in a art museum!! Do check it out!!!
