The museum at Söderlångvik Manor, located in the main building, displays Amos Anderson’s art collection and information about his personal history. The museum was opened to the public in 1965 according to the wishes of Amos Anderson (1878–1961). The house underwent a thorough renovation in 2018–2021 when the interiors regained their original style from the 1930s. The interior of Söderlångvik is mostly classic design featuring both antique furniture and retro-style furniture. Most of Amos Anderson’s library is located here; the rest is in Amos’ apartment in Helsinki, which was opened as the museum Amos Andersons Hem in March 2023. 

The permanent exhibition at Söderlångvik displays art from collections of the art association Konstsamfundet. The selection mainly consists of Finnish art from 1900 to 1950. 

The interiors are special in many ways. The first thing visitors encounter in the museum’s entrance hall is Juho Rissanen’s recently cleaned Bretagne-Madonna. The Billiard Room is dominated by seating furniture that was originally intended to be used by Prince Frederick Charles of Hesse, the would-be first king of Finland. The large dining room is furnished for 34 dinner guests, and there is a private cinema hidden in the basement. 

The museum annually organises one or more temporary exhibitions of contemporary art. The most unusual features of the museum are on the outside: the four caryatids—the female-shaped columns from the Swedish Theatre’s original façade from 1866—have graced Amos Anderson’s garage since the mid-1930s, when the theatre was renovated. 

Come learn about Amos Anderson’s impressive life and see his extensive art collection as well as our exhibitions!

From the house, you can enjoy a beautiful view of the garden that Paul Olsson designed in the 1930s. A fountain called “Nyckeln” meaning “The Key” was built at that time. Over the years, the park has gone through many changes, but the aim has been to preserve parts of the original design. Many of the trees on the big lawn were planted by guests of Amos Anderson. During the large renovation project 2019–2021, the park was restored to its former glory as well.
