Address: Amos Rex (Lasipalatsi)
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.
The museum has a free unguarded cloakroom and lockers that are at your disposal during your visit to the museum.
Please note that large items do not fit in the museum’s cloakroom or lockers. Luggage storage is available, for example, at Helsinki Railway Station, 350 meters from Amos Rex.
