Visit the Wäinö Aaltonen Museum of Art

Contemporary art by the river

The Wäinö Aaltonen Museum of Art (WAM) is the Turku City Art Museum named after the famous sculptor, Wäinö Aaltonen (1894–1966), from Turku. For nearly 50 years this modernist white museum building has been reflected in the Aurajoki river, becoming part of the cultural landscape on the east bank. The middle-aged museum isn’t content to just rest on its laurels, but is presenting new and experimental art projects. In addition to changing exhibitions, the programme includes various cultural events, lectures, concerts and theme days for families. The museum is also home to the Wäinön valinta museum shop and pleasant Café Wäinö.
