Finnish painter and art professor Eero Nelimarkka founded the Nelimarkka Museum in Alajärvi in 1964. Today, the Nelimarkka Museum also serves as the regional art museum in South Ostrobothnia. In addition to exhibiting Eero Nelimarkka’s artworks, the museum mainly displays contemporary art by Finnish and foreign artists.
Museum services include school and group tours, events and workshops.
Villa Väinölä, designed by Alvar Aalto, also hosts Nelimarkka’s artist residency programme and a programme of regional art exhibitions.
