The Artists Home of the Heiska Family

Kramsunkatu 8,
40600 Jyvskyl

Unique studio home of the Heiska family from the early 20th century.


The studio home (1912) of the Heiska family, painter Jonas Heiska, his wife piano teacher Maikki Heiska and their daughter, drawer and graphic artist Vappu Heiska, in the lyl district that grew up around the Jyvskyl Teachers Training College.

Situated on Kramsunkatu in lyl, the Artists Home with its objects, art and book collections, photographs, and archival materials offers people from Jyvskyl and Central Finland as well as from elsewhere a chance to explore the life of the Heiska family of artists in their home environment over the course of two generations.

The artist Vappu Heiska (1921-1993) bequeathed the Artists Home with its movables to the City of Jyvskyl in 1993. The house had been designed and built in 1912 by her father, the artist Jonas Heiska (1873-1937). Back in the day, art lovers and the music circles of Jyvskyl gathered in the Heiska Artists Home. Maikki Heiska (1889-1961), the mother of the family of three, gave piano lessons there for numerous young pianists. The museum has been open to the public since 1998 and it is a part of the neighbouring Museum of Central Finland.
