The Lappeenranta Art Museum is located opposite the Orthodox Church at the Lappeenranta Fortress, in a neo-classical barracks building, dating from 1798. The museum is also the regional art museum of South-East Finland. The Art Museum collection mostly contains works of Finnish fine arts, from the 19th century up to present time. One large and important collection is the colliction By Viipurin Taiteenystävät ry (Vyborg Friends of Art). The art from South-Eastern Finland is one of the main focuses in the acquisitions of the museum.
