The Kirpilä Art Collection was donated to the Finnish Cultural Foudantion by Doctor Juhani Kirpilä (1931–1988). The art collection is exhibited in his former home located in central Helsinki. In the charming atmosphere of a well preserved interior you can enjoy a rich and varied collection of paintings and sculptures representing Finnish art from the 1850's to the 1980’s.
