Enjoy a cup of coffee on the sunniest terrace in Turku
In addition to visiting the museum, you should definitely take a break and relax for a moment in the atmospheric Cafe Wäinö. The beautiful Aurajoki scenery and the sunniest terrace in Turku really crown your art experience. Enjoy a nice cup of coffee or a drink, and go through the exhibition in your mind once more. The aquarium adds an interesting element to the atmosphere of the cafe.
Contemporary art by the river
The Wäinö Aaltonen Museum of Art (WAM) is the Turku City Art Museum named in honour of the famous Turku born sculptor, Wäinö Aaltonen (1894–1966). For nearly 50 years this modernist white museum building has reflected itself in the Aurajoki river, becoming an intrinsic part of the urban cultural landscape on the east bank.
