Museums and Galleries

Architecture and design, cultural history from Central Finland, fascinating art exhibitions and various craft phenomena - welcome to Jyväskylä's museums and galleries!

Aalto2 is the new dimension of the Museum of Central Finland and the Alvar Aalto Museum in Jyväskylä, Finland. The Alvar Aalto Museum is responsible for Alvar Aalto’s architecture and design legacy and the The Museum of Central Finland, more familiarly known as KeMu, cherishes the cultural heritage of Central Finland. Together both museums reach further and closer in exploring their shared love — milieus of life.
Jyväskylä Art museum exhibits fascinating phenomena of contemporary art, Central Finnish fine art, Finnish and international graphic art and drawings. The museum also focuses on accessibility and public participation in the visual arts.
The Craft Museum of Finland is a specialized museum for handicraft covering entire Finland. It tells the story of Finnish craftsmanship as part of the fabric of history. Behind the unobtrusive façade in the heart of Jyväskylä, there are experiences for all the senses and all ages.
There are also interesting exhibitions at the University Science Museum, the Natural History Museum and the Finnish Air Force Museum.
