The WAM building undergoing renovation was completed in 1967 and designed by the architectural firm Irma and Matti Aaltonen. One of Finland’s significant museum buildings from the 1960s, preserving and renovating the structure as part of Turku’s valuable Aura River cultural zone is an important project for the cityscape.

“Through this renovation, WAM will gain new energy with functional solutions for both modern exhibition technology and audience needs. At the same time, we’ll restore and reinstate original materials, color schemes and ambiance in line with the initial vision,” said Satu Pajarre, Head of Unit at Turku Museum Center.

The renovation aims to revitalize the museum while respecting its architectural heritage along the Aura riverfront. Expanded facilities and upgraded accessibility will allow WAM to enhance its exhibition programming and better serve visitors.
