Villa Gyllenberg

"Through art, we wanted to open windows to new values of reality and satisfy the continuously increasing need for beauty"

— Ane Gyllenberg

The Villa Gyllenberg museum, which is comprised of the Gyllenberg family home and an adjoining gallery, is located in the beautiful and natural surroundings of Helsinki’s Kuusisaari area. Visitors enter the ambient old villa to find an art collector’s home, built in the middle of the 1900s. Exhibitions on specific themes are held in the adjoining gallery, which also acts as a popular concert venue.

Villa Gyllenberg is an attractive meeting place for artistic, culturohistorical, and scientific experiences.

COVID-19 info

We want to make sure that both visitors and employees feel safe in our museum and have therefore taken some COVID-19 measures.

It is important to avoid crowds, which means we will not arrange public tours or events at the museum until further notice. The Path to Hidden Knowledge exhibition is designed to be experienced without a guide, and the Seeker’s Handbook (available at the cashier) supports the exhibition experience. Our staff is happy to tell more about the exhibition and the museum. Guided tours by appointment can be arranged outside the opening hours for groups of maximum 20 persons. Read more about guided tours.

We may have to limit the number of visitors in the museum. The 2-3 first hours of the day are usually the busiest, and Saturdays and Sundays are busier than Wednesdays.

Cleaning of the museum is done regularly, hand sanitizer is available at several locations, door handles have been covered with anti-microbic film and a protective glass shield has been installed at the cashier. We recommend that visitors use card payment instead of cash. Our staff may use protective gloves and masks.

We welcome all visitors, but please keep a safe distance to other visitors and staff and stay home if you feel even the slightest of flu symptoms.
