About us

The Finnish Museum of Photography is Finland's national specialised museum for photography that strives to promote and foster photographic art and culture in Finland. Founded on the initiative of Finnish photography organisations, the museum opened its doors in 1969. The museum is maintained by the Foundation for the Finnish Museum of Photography.

The museum’s exhibitions cover Finnish and international contemporary photography, as well as the diverse history of the craft. The museum’s public engagement programme supports exhibition activities and produces photographic and media education projects for different audiences. The museum’s customer and image service answers the public’s queries and offers assistance with questions related to photographs, their storage, digitisation, and conservation.
