Exhibition for Jean Sibelius' 150th anniversary at the National Museum in 2015

The year 2015 marks the 150th anniversary of the birth of composer Jean Sibelius. This is a very important event, which will be observed in many ways both in Finland and worldwide. To celebrate this anniversary, the National Museum and the National Library of Finland are cooperating to organise an extensive exhibition in the National Museum's facilities in 15 October 2015–16 January 2016.
The exhibition will offer Finnish and international audiences alike the opportunity to see the original manuscripts of Sibelius' works. The exhibition will feature material from the collections of the National Library, the National Museum and the National Archives, as well as objects from Sibelius' home, Ainola.
