Amos Rex Art Museum
Amos Rex is an art museum where the past, present and future meet.
Amos Rex is a meeting place for art and urban culture, consisting of new underground exhibition spaces, the old Lasipalatsi (glass palace) from 1936 and its Bio Rex cinema, as well as a vibrant event forum on Lasipalatsi Square, which will serve as the roof of the exhibition hall.
The core of Amos Rex resides in flexible and easily adaptable exhibition spaces as well as an art workshop dedicated to children and youngsters. The Lasipalatsi’s classical 590-seat movie theatre will provide a home for cross-disciplinary activities, numerous film festivals and regular film screenings on weekends. On weekdays, Bio Rex, with its atmospheric foyer, is available to rent for various events.
Amos Rex’s exhibition programme extends from the newest, often experimental, contemporary art to 20th-century Modernism and ancient cultures. Amos Rex aims to present captivating and ambitious art refreshingly and exuberantly. The goal will be for the past, present and future to produce unique experiences and surprising encounters beneath and above ground, and on the screen.
Half a dozen restaurants and cafés operate adjacent to the museum, so there is little danger of hunger striking during museum visits. Lasipalatsi (Glass Palace) has restaurants Haiku and Ravintola Lasipalatsi as well as cafés La Torrefazione, Cafe Java and Café Lasipalatsi. There are two terraces Dekki and Lasipalatsin Laituri on the Lasipalatsi square for sunny summer days.
Amos Rex offers one-of-a-kind and surprising experiences and encounters, and now the new museum shop also expands the exhibition experience. Shop is open when Amos Rex is open.
