Amos Rex

Mannerheimintie 22-24, Helsinki, 00100

The Basics

Temporary exhibitions form the crux of the Amos Rex experience, so check the museum website to see what’s showing during your visit. Past exhibitions have focused on René Magritte, Sigurd Frosterus, and the Studio Drift collective, and the museum is known for its innovative use of space and digital multi-media. It’s easy to explore on a self-guided tour as exhibitions are well marked in English, but if you want deeper insight into the creative heritage of the museum, opt to take an art- or architecture-focused tour.
