The Sinebrychoff Art Museum is a museum in Finland that contains the largest collection of European art from the 14th-19th centuries. Included in the museum complex of the Finnish National Gallery.
The museum was created on the basis of the collection of the Sinebryukhov beer producers in 1921. Today the gallery is located in the mansion of the first owner of the brewing company and commerce advisor N.P.Sinebryukhov, built in 1842.
On the second floor of the Sinebrychoff Art Museum there are living quarters of the first owners of the house with original furnishings, pieces of furniture, a cabinet of miniatures and other art collections. Exhibitions are held on the first floor of the museum.
The collection of the art museum has been replenished many times by private donors, through donations and investments, own museum acquisitions.
The oldest collection donated to the museum is the personal collection of Baron Otto Wilhelm Klinkovstrom. It was donated to the Finnish Art Society in 1851. The museum also donated collections of H. F. Antell, J. Linde, K. Jele, K. von Haartmann. A separate place in the collection of the Sinebrychoffs is occupied by Dutch Flemish painting of the 17th century and Swedish portraits of the 17th-18th centuries.
