The Säynätsalo Town Hall is one of architect Alvar Aalto’s most significant works. It enjoys a unique position in the history of modern architecture. The Säynätsalo Town Hall is a building with many functions: municipal administration (until 1993), library, residential spaces, business premises, and guest rooms.
You will hear during the tour interesting stories and facts about Aalto's life, architecture, and the history of Säynätsalo. The tour takes about half an hour and after that, you are allowed to experience the building more of your own.
The tour guide will adjust the tour according to age, Aalto enthusiasm, profession, and studies of the participants.
The private tour allows more individual questions and interaction between participants and the guide.
Generally scheduled tours and timetables are published on Aalto Museum’s website.
Säynätsalo Town Hall is not accessible. It is possible to use the elevator to the office and exhibition level, but the counselors’ chamber has only a staircase to access.
Please, schedule a loose timetable for your visit to the Town Hall. The guided tour takes about 30 minutes, but after paying the entrance fee, you can explore the building more of your own. A visit to the library is possible during its opening hours. Groups can also request a visit to the library while closed.
