The Cygnaeus gallery

 

in short

Opened in 1882, the Cygnaeus gallery is the oldest art museum in Finland. The Cygnaeus Gallery grew out of the art collection bequeathed in his will to the Finnish nation by Professor Fredrik Cygnaeus (1807-1881). The collection donated by him in his will consisted of about 200 works.

The museum is located in Fredrik Cygnaeus' summer villa, which was also part of his bequest. The romantic villa, designed by the German architect J. W. Mieritz in Kaivopuisto Park, is one of the few wooden buildings that has been preserved in downtown Helsinki.
