Tikanoja Art Museum
The Tikanoja Art Museum is located in the centre of Vaasa. The museum organises exhibitions of older Finnish and international art, thematic cultural-historical exhibitions as well as changing displays of its own collections.
A pedagogical touch and museum pedagogical activities related to exhibitions play an important role at the Tikanoja Art Museum. The Tikanoja Art Museum is a vivid museum that also offers cross-disciplinary art performances.
The Tikanoja Art Museum came into being as a result of the love of art of a local businessman, Commercial Counsellor Frithjof Tikanoja (1877-1964). The Tikanoja collection includes an exceptionally remarkable section of foreign art in Finland with an emphasis on French paintings from the 19th and early 20th centuries.
