Regional Art Museums

There are 16 regional art museums in Finland, which are tasked with promoting and steering art museum operations in their operating areas as well as ensuring the availability of information related to art. In addition to this, regional art museums serve as experts in matters related to the arts and visual culture in their regions.

The Finnish Heritage Agency holds periodic negotiations with regional art museums on the focus areas and objectives of regional operations.
