Museum of Central Finland

Alvar Aallon katu 7

Embark on a discovery of the Central Finland mindset in a gorgeous museum building designed by the world famous Alvar Aalto.


What is it about Central Finland? Why do so many significant innovations, such as the Finnish-speaking school system, have their roots in Central Finland? These and many other matters are pondered in the Museum of Central Finland.

The Museum of Central Finland is a cultural history museum located in a magnificient museum building designed by Alvar Aalto. The building is located in the Ruusupuisto neighbourhood in Jyvskyl next to the Seminaarinmki campus of the University of Jyvskyl.

The museum tells its visitors stories relating to Central Finland. At the museum, one can delve into the exhibitions, take a trip down memory lane, learn something new or just look and wonder.

The permanent exhibition Exploring Central Finland takes the visitor on a voyage through time from Stone Age sites all the way to the technology craze of the turn of the millenium. In addition, the museum has two spaces for temporary exhibitions which display a variety of different everyday phenomena, art and, for example youth culture - always with an interesting, current, and Central Finnish approach. In the children's craft corner Nappula, one can play old-time board games, play with old toys, and make, for example, a button spinning top to take home.

The Museum of Central Finland offers both locals and visitors from further afield an exploration into the Central Finnish cultural heritage. On this voyage, everyone can find out delightful things also about oneself!
