Owner description: The collections of the Sinebrychoff Art Museum include some of the most valuable and internationally important paintings by old European masters to be found in Finland. The collections have mainly been made up of donations. The unique house museum of Paul and Fanny Sinebrychoff, a permanent exhibition on the 2nd floor makes up the core of the museum. The art collection of the Sinebrychoffs, including furniture and other artefacts was left to the Finnish government as a bequest in 1921.

Our recent visit to the Sinebrychoff Museum gave us a chance to see a powerful yet tender exhibit entitled Trees Are Poems featuring photography, drawing and painting. The rest of the museum was interesting as well, including an amazing collection of miniatures. Well worth a visit - especially if you enjoy older European art. That the more contemporary special exhibit was featured (Trees Are Poems) made the place feel artistically alive even though it is a historical collection.

i have been to better art museums.Albeit the Sinebrychoff has an outstanding collection of Swedish oil paintings and miniatures.It has a nice sampling of Dutch oil paintings by the famous(Rembrandt,Goyen,Nicholas Maes) and the not famous(Jan Cool,Jan Van Noordt,Isaac de Joudreville).Its collection of Italian,German,and French paintings is somewhat sketchy,despite superb paintings by Cranach the Elder,Jurgen Ovens,Antoine Watteau,Giovanni Boccati,and Giovanni Castiglione.The lighting in the Dutch and Swedish portraiture sections is poor.Senior citizens receive a two Euro discount.There is labelling of artworks in English.Personal favorites were;Rembrandt's"Monk Reading",Giovanni Boccati's"Adoration of Magi",Giovanni Castiglione's"Orpheus Singing to Animals",Hieronymous Francken the Second's"Connoisseurs in Art Gallery",and Carl Wilhelm de Hamilton's"Forest Floor Stillife",So enjoy this cozy art museum.

This museum is in an old family home west of the center of the city. The family was in the beer making business and there is an exhibit in the basement relating to Koff Beer. The mansion lends itself to a museum. The top floor shows what the family home looked like in the 1920s--large furniture, overstuffed chairs, alot of art work oh the walls, etc.
The first floor had a temporary exhibit of Dutch and Flemish paintings from the Tallin Museum--some very good work by Maes, Tenier, Ostade, Steen. The permanent collection was not up to that level but was interesting--a few famous names--one Rembrant showing an old man reading, a Ribera and a Joshua Reynolds. Most of the information was in English, but not all.

This is a nice little museum, that backs up to a lovely park and near a popular cafe. It is away from the tourist area, but is walkable from the center or one can take a tram.
