Alvar Aalto Museum

The Alvar Aalto Museum is a specialist museum of architecture and design, and a national and international centre for Aalto information, in Jyväskylä. It forms part of the Alvar Aalto Foundation, which seeks to ensure the continued accessibility of the world-renowned architect and designer Alvar Aalto’s material and intellectual heritage. The Foundation works to make the ideas behind Aalto’s works and design better known.

The Museum building designed by Alvar Aalto is undergoing complete renovation in 2021–23. At the same time, a new section is being built, which unites the Alvar Aalto Museum and the adjacent Museum of Central Finland, also designed by Aalto. Together the museums will form a museum centre, which creates new scope for putting on top-quality exhibitions and events. While the construction work is going on, the Alvar Aalto Museum will be closed to the public, but the building and Aalto’s design are still viewable in this virtual exhibition.
