HAM – an art museum that is the size of Helsinki

The Helsinki Art Museum, HAM, looks after an art collection that belongs to the people of Helsinki, which includes over 9,000 works of art. Almost half of these works are on display in parks, streets, offices, health centres, schools and libraries, to brighten up everyone’s day. HAM draws attention to modern art and contemporary art in its exhibitions which are held principally at the Tennis Palace.
