In Ainola, you can learn about the great Finnish composer Jean Sibelius and his family in the setting of his own home.

Ainola was the home of Jean Sibelius and his family from 1904. This timber-built villa was designed by the renowed Finnish architect Lars Sonck. Its distance from the hustle and bustle of the nation’s capital gave the composer the peace that he needed for his creative endeavours, while other artistic families living in the neighbourhood provided a lively social circle.

Ainola was named after the master composer's wife, Aino. Sibelius fell in love with the natural beauty of the area and lived in here most of his life. You can still experience the silence which the composer considered indispensable for this work.

The grave of the composer and his wife Aino is located in the garden.

Ainola is closed in the winter time. 
It is open from May to September, Tuesday - Sunday 10am - 5pm. Mondays closed.
