Museum building

Designed by architect Magnus Schjerfbeck, the Museum of Finnish Architecture is an excellent example of the repurposing of a historically valuable building. The building was built in 1899 for the Federation of Finnish Learned Societies, and it is located in the centre of Helsinki. The building is a significant representative of the Neo-Renaissance style in Finland, owing particularly to its elegant interior.
