Villa Didrichsen was designed as a home by still young architect Viljo Revell for the wealthy Danish businessman Gunnar Didrichsen and his Finnish family of six. The couple's love for art and everything beautiful led them to acquire paintings, sculptures and an unique collection of Pre-Columbian primitive art. These mainly clay artefacts covering the period from 1500 BC to 1492... More

Didrichsen is a small and intime museum with high quality exhibitions. Also this time. Lionel Smit's faces are fascinating. Don't forget the video-film downstairs. Open until the 29.01.2017.

I visited here last week, for the second time in my life, to see the Lionel Smit exhibition that my daughter recommended to me. It had been years since the 2012 Maya Calendar exhibition, and based on that, my expectations were high. Didrichsen delivered, and then some. I loved both the permanent and changing exhibitions. The house had been renovated... More

A small and friendly art museum, located at the seaside, which is in itself well worth a visit. They do have both older and newer pieces of art. Pretty often they also have performances going on.

The building itself is a fine piece of modern Finnish architecture of the late 1950's and the location on the shore causes envy. The collections of ancient Mexican and Chinese art balance the modern art they usually host. There is also a museum shop and a small cafe.

This is a family foundation museum located in the outskirts of Helsinki in a very charming private house area. The building it self is interesting example of Finnish 60ties architecture. Very nice with a fantastic peaceful surrounding. There is a permanent collection of family owned art and old items rating back to 2000 bc. Items are mostly south american or... More

Originally a family home with attached private museum it is now entirely a museum. High quality collection of which only a small proportion can... More

A wonderful seaside location not too far from the center of the town. Some 20-30 minutes (2km) walk along seaside from tram nr 4 stop (Hilton Hotel Kalastajatorppa). Absolutely worth it - always!

Allways a high-quality exhibitions. The building is located by the sea with lovely view. It has been a home for the Didrichsen family before it was turned into a museum. Surrounded by the building there is a public park with sculptures, such as Henry Moore's.

This small museum frequently has the best exhibitions in town. And often you get more from a smaller one...
