Serlachius Museum Gösta

Serlachius Museums offer a unique combination of art, award-winning architecture, history, good food and beautiful nature. The history of Serlachius Museum Gösta can be traced back to 1945, when pieces from the valuable collection of the fine arts foundation established by paper mill owner Gösta Serlachius began to be displayed in his stately home, Joenniemi Manor.

In 2014, a wood pavilion was built adjacent to the art museum, which saw the Serlachius Fine Arts Foundation expand its activities to include modern art. The three exhibition spaces in the pavilion feature exhibitions by well-known Finnish and international modern artists.

In addition to hosting exhibitions, Art Museum Gösta is a hub for diverse cultural activities. The Kivijärvi Hall in the pavilion hosts concerts, theatre performances and seminars all year round. The museum is also a setting for concerts as part of the Mänttä Music Festival and events during the Mänttä Food Festival.

Restaurant Gösta in the art museum offers a wide range of services ranging from straightforward lunches to special occasions and formal dinners.

The sculpture garden around the museum, Taavetinsaari Island and the Love Path along the lakeshore provide opportunities to enjoy nature during art excursions, breaks from meetings or a company recreation day. You can borrow bicycles, Nordic walking poles and rowboats from the museum.
