Honestly I was rather sceptical about Korundi, I didn't expect a lot from local museum of modern art. And I'm rather sceptical about modern art as well=)) But surprisingly Korundi presents itself a good city art gallery. Some art works are weird, I'm not that specialist to understand all=) But there are also all kinds of spectacular and amazing things:... More

I had the pleasure to visit korundi this week with my spouse. Concert hall is small but beautiful and acoustics are perfect. Art exhibitions are tasteful and represent scandinavian art at its finest. If you visit Rovaniemi and are a culture lover this place is a must!

I have been to Korundi concert hall two times listening to the Lappi Chamber Orchestra and once to the Oulu Big Band. The acoustics of the hall are famous, and not without a reason. The building itself is fascinating, an architectural jewel, turning an old building to something totally different.

Rovaniemi Art museum and Lapland Chamber Orchestra reside in this beautiful old building in the heart of Rovaniemi. The exhibitions are really interesting, for instance the Tapio Wirkkala retrospective is worth the visit almost alone (Wirkkala exhibition ends February 28th 2016). In the exhibition program you can see art from Jenny and Antti Wihuri Foundation collection, which is housed in... More

My first visit to Korundi. Occupy Space - Finnish Sculptures was a wonderful, inspiring exhibition. Cafe was also a pretty comfy place to hang out. Ensimmäinen käyntini kulttuuritalossa. Tila haltuun -näyttely oli innostava katsaus kotimaiseen kuvanveistoon. Korundin aula oli myös rento oleilupaikka. Tulen uudestaan.

This is a sort of place which divides opinions – like it or hate it! The is a museum of modern art and modern is the key word. There are definitely some weird stuff here, but it also has its own beauty. It is not straight forward, you have to give some effort and try to understand. There are really interesting... More

Fascinating memorial exhibit to the Kursk submarine disaster. Photography exhibition is a bit of a mixture. some of the Camera Obscura will be of general interest, but some will really only interest photographic art buffs. But the Kursk exhibit is really good - with text in Finnish and English

Not many art works to look at, but it is good that it still open during Easter weekend. Approx. 1 hour could finish the walk.

If you like weird art, go for it. For me, I could have easily missed it. Its nice and clean etc but the art work was not for me.
