The art museum was designed by the Tampere architect Pekka Ilveskoski and associates. The total floor area is some 2,500 square metres, of which 1,500 square metres are used for exhibitions.

The building is situated on a northern slope of the Särkänniemi peninsula overlooking a shoreline of great natural beauty. Good use has been made of the topographical features of the site, with the upper level, from which the building is approached, devoted to offices and galleries for paintings, while sculptures, the coffee room and storage space occupy the lower level. Large windows afford an open view over the grounds with their sculptures and the expanse of Lake Näsijärvi. The Särkänniemi area with its Observation Tower and numerous other attractions is a major Finnish leisured centre.
