The Poster Museum was established in connection with The Lahti Art Museum in Autumn 1975. Its aim is to collect, deposit and study Finnish and foreign graphic design. The collections are augmented mainly through donations but also through purchases and deposits. The collections contain approximately 60 000 prints, most of which are posters.
Also labels, ex libris, copies of art prints etc. are being collected. The Graphic Designers, The Finnish Fair Cooperation and the publishing company Otava, among others, have deposited posters at the museum. The Cooperative Union and the publishing company WSOY have donated their poster collections to The Lahti Poster Museum.
