Address: Amos Rex (Lasipalatsi)
Mannerheimintie 22–24

Amos Rex’s main entrance is in the Lasipalatsi (glass palace), on the Mannerheimintie side. The closest Metro stations are Kamppi and Central Railway Station, and the museum can be reached from either of those without crossing busy streets.

Bicycle racks are available along Mannerheimintie, on the Simonkatu side and in the Lasipalatsi courtyard. The nearest city bike station is in front of the Kiasma art museum.

Chartered buses can leave and pick-up groups outside Lasipalatsi, on Mannerheimintie, but there is no parking available.


An accessible entrance is situated on the Lasipalatsi Square side. Those who use the accessible entrance can buy tickets in the museum gift shop.

Three accessible toilets are available on the exhibition level.

Lost property

Rules of the museum

The rules exist so that both the artworks and the visitors can enjoy the museum.

  • The artworks must not be touched.
  • Visitors must proceed calmly through the museum.
  • You do not need to be silent, but we ask that you take other visitors into consideration.
  • To ensure the safety of the artworks, no leaning on the walls or display cases.
  • Pets are not allowed in the museum. Guide dogs and assistance dogs are welcome.
  • Always obey instructions given by the museum staff.

  • backpacks and large bags, maximum size for handbags is 30 x 30cm
  • liquids

  • camera tripods or selfie sticks
  • outerwear (also note that jackets cannot be carried over the arm)

The museum has a free, guarded coatroom and storage lockers. Note that the museum coatroom can not accommodate large items. Storage for luggage is available for example at Helsinki Railway station 350 m from Amos Rex.

Amos Rex is an art museum open to everyone. Our core values include equality, as a museum and as a workplace, and we do not accept any form of discrimination on our premises.

Food and drink

Half a dozen restaurants and cafés operate adjacent to the museum, so there is little danger of hunger striking during museum visits. All of them serve excellent food, but if you feel like some fine dining after an exhibition, we recommend booking a table at Restaurant Lasipalatsi in advance.

The museum has more than 550 seats on its terrace for days when the sun is shining.
