Kirpilä Art Collection
Located in a former private home, the Kirpilä Art Collection is a unique art museum that presents a passionate art lover's collection and provides a glimpse of the life of well-to-do Helsinkians in the second half of the twentieth century.
The museum is housed in the apartment that was the home of the rheumatologist Juhani Kirpilä (1931-1988) and his partner, the antiques dealer Karl (Kalle) Rosenqvist, between 1979 and 1988. It covers nearly 350 square metres on the top floor of a functionalist house in the district of Töölö.
