Paimio Sanatorium

Experience Alvar Aalto’s modern masterpiece with all your senses.

Paimio Sanatorium was finished at 1933 and it functioned as tuberculosis sanatorium for decades. It is a masterpiece by Alvar and Aino Aalto. Building itself is a healing element.

On a guided tour you’ll get to see this wonderful architecture from inside and also furniture and lamps that were designed for this building. Sanatorium was designed to be completely functional – for patients and staff both. Even colors follow the function of the room.

The Paimio Sanatorium Foundation was established in 2020. The foundation was founded by the Hospital District of Southwest Finland, the State of Finland, the Alvar Aalto Foundation, the Municipality of Paimio and the City of Turku. For more information click here
