The exhibitions in the K.H.Renlund Museum are aimed at giving visitors a versatile image of the cultural history and art in Kokkola and Central Ostrobothnia. The museum’s own collections form the basis for the exhibitions and display material that strengthen the urban identity of the local residents in Kokkola. The K.H.Renlund Museum hosts 5–7 changing exhibitions every year, with emphasis on modern (contemporary) art and Finnish contemporary folk art (ITE). The museum’s own collections shed light on the local cultural history and art with the help of different themes and phenomena.
