Blomstedt sketched a museum building for the recently formed Museum of Central Finland Association adjacent to a possible future scientific library in Ruusupuisto park. The project foundered, however, because of the limited funds of the Association and the Museum commenced operations in a small brick building in Cygnaeuksenkatu.
