Joensuu Art Museum Onni
The Onni Art Museum's permanent exhibitions feature the museum's diverse Art Collections throughout the year. In addition, there are changing exhibitions on the ground floor of the museum, which focus on current phenomena in Finnish and international visual art. The art museum is located right in the center of Joensuu, close to the market square. Completed in 1894, the impressive museum building is a former lyceum.
The Museum’s permanent exhibitions include three international collections. One showcases art from different periods of Chinese culture, another includes art and artifacts from Ancient Greece and Rome, while the third includes Catholic art from 14th to 18th Century Central and Southern Europe. The Museum’s collection of icons provides a glimpse of the Orthodox culture characteristic in Eastern Finland and the Finnish exhibitions take visitors to a tour from the Golden Age of Finnish art all the way to modern art.
