Ser­lac­hius Museum Gös­ta


The Pavilion

In sum­mer 2014, be­si­de the Art museum’s ma­nor, rose the ex­ten­sion which enables ex­hi­bi­tions lar­ger and more ver­sa­ti­le than be­fo­re. The pa­vi­lion tripled the ex­hi­bi­tion spaces; now Gös­ta has a to­tal of 1500 sq.m. ex­hi­bi­tion space. The ex­ten­sion con­tains also mo­dern con­ser­va­tion faci­li­ties, a mag­ni­ficent res­tau­rant with a beau­ti­ful view, a fes­ti­ve hall and a spacious museum shop.

An in­ter­na­tio­nal ge­ne­ral arc­hi­tec­tu­ral com­pe­ti­tion was or­ga­ni­sed to de­sign the art museum’s ex­ten­sion. In to­tal 579 ent­ries from 42 count­ries were inclu­ded – lar­gest amount ever in the his­to­ry of arc­hi­tec­tu­ral com­pe­ti­tions in Fin­land. MX_­SI arc­hi­tec­tu­ral stu­dio from Spain was cho­sen a win­ner.

The Manor

The ma­nor was comple­ted in 1935 as the mill ow­ner Gös­ta Ser­lac­hius’ pri­va­te re­si­dence, whe­re he also en­ter­tai­ned busi­ness acquain­tances. The first floor of the buil­ding de­sig­ned by Fin­nish arc­hi­tect Jarl Eklund has ser­ved as a museum since 1945. The museum was the se­venth art museum in Fin­land at that time. The en­ti­re buil­ding was ope­ned as an art museum in 1984. The ex­hi­bi­tions at the Ma­nor showca­se the Fine Arts Foun­da­tions’ own col­lec­tions and artworks from the Gol­den Age of Fin­nish art.
