The former home of Finland's most famous son, composer Jean Sibelius, was designed by Lars Sonck in 1904 and takes its name from his wife, Aino. From late spring through summer, the intimate wooden house set in secluded woodland is open to the public as a museum. Take a bus from the Helsinki Linja-autoasema (bus station) or a local train first to the town of Järvenpää; Ainola is 2 km (1 mi) farther by bus or taxi.
