Halosenniemi, wilderness studio of painter Pekka Halonen is situated on the shores of Lake Tuusula. Halosenniemi was built in the Finnish national romantic style and was completed in 1902. Log-built Halosenniemi today functions as an art museum and has been renovated to its original style. The exhibitions, which change a few times a year, feature the works of Halonen and other well-known painters.
Pekka Halonen is known for his depiction of Finnish nature and robust country folk. He studied art in Paris, but lived and worked on the shores of Lake Tuusula for more than three decades. He is best known for his paintings of winter scenery. They were painted outdoors- even in the freezing depths of winter - near his home, Halosenniemi.
The museum is open year-round, but please note that it closed on Mondays.
In the summer, a small café and a museum shop are located in the ticket office.
