Hämeenlinna Art Museum

Hämeenlinna Art Museum has operated since 1952 in a granary store designed by C. L. Engel. The foundation of the collection was formed by the works evacuated in 1939 from Viipuri Art Museum because of the war. The Lohrmann storehouse in the museum’s ground was renovated in 1997. The new museum facility houses the contemporary art collection of Henna and Pertti Niemistö, which mainly consists of Finnish paintings and sculptures from the 1950s to the present day.
