This booklet presents the home of Jean and Aino Sibelius. The text provides a guide to the museum and only touches briefly on the personal history and life’s work of Jean Sibelius. After the death of their parents in 1972 Aino Sibelius’s daughters sold most of the property and its buildings to the Finnish State, including the complete interiors, furniture, works of art and the library with its collection of published music. The home was converted into a museum opening in 1974, and the interior was kept as it was during Jean and Aino Sibelius’s time.
