The Alvar Aalto Museum’s collections of drawings and photographs and the Artek drawings and documents are all in Jyväskylä. The archives are open to researchers.

Catalogued building documentation is located in Jyväskylä too. Databases covering the collections are available for browsing in Jyväskylä.

Orders for material from the collections can be met as paper copies or in electronic form. There will be an expert-service charge for any orders that require search work and for database reports.

Visits to the archives must always be agreed in advance.

The Alvar Aalto Museum operates in temporary premises during the renovation of the museum building. Normal operations and customer services have been reduced and resources will be focused on producing the new Aalto exhibition and activities of the new Aalto2 museum hub. Therefore, the design-related object response and identification service will also be on break until spring 2023.
