Ainola

in detail

This timber-built villa was designed by the famous Finnish architect Lars Sonck. Its distance from the hustle and bustle of the nation’s capital gave the composer the peace that he needed for his creative endeavours, while other artistic families living in the neighbourhood provided a lively social circle.

Following the death of Jean Sibelius in 1957 and Aino Sibelius ten years later their five daughters sold Ainola to the Finnish State. The Ainola Foundation established in 1972 now administers the property as a museum. Ainola is open to the public during the summer months from May to September.
