When I was in Helsinki, there is Marimekko exhibition. It was so attractive and fascinating. I'm not a museum type but this museum rocks.

I used to go to Kiasma very often when they had free entry once a week. It seems that nowadays it's only every first Friday of the month from 4 P.M. until 8 P.M. (when they re-open in March). The architecture is unique, and also the art displayed of course ;)

This museum is FUN! Not far from the National History Museum this one is about contemporary art and the building alone is a great adventure. Take at least half a day to enjoy this wonderful museum. The shop is nice and the restaurant as well. An absolute MUST in Helsinki.

I'm not very big with arts otherwise, but I keep coming back when ever I can. Relaxing... One of the nicest things to do in Helsinki.

This museum is a MUST. It is not too far from the National Museum, actually within walking distance, and it is full of light and wonderful art. Contemporary artist, their ideas and philosophies are shown and the building itself is simply marvellous. The entrance is a long ramp leading up, perfect for handicapped people. Art can be so much fun.

Centrally located in an interesting building. The exhibitions are mostly interesting, too. At the moment it is under renovation. Will be reopened in March 2015. Some pieces of the collection are available in Taidehalli a couple of blocks away.

Kiasma is interesting, both fun and boring and a bit weird too! It's central location, easy to find and if you go on the right time you get in for free! So why not pay a visit?

Both the standing and current exhibitions were well-curated and interesting. Central location. This is one museum that you don't want to miss.

I usually enjoy visiting modern art museums when I travel. This museum was a bit... too modern for me. I suppose that hardcore modern art people would enjoy Kiasma more. But it was a good way to spend a rainy day and interesting artwork to look at. My travelling pal and I had the Helsinki Card so there was no... More

Not interactive at all! Just a couple of interesting objects! Visited the museum several times and ech time hoping to discover some new names. The last visit was the best thanks to our 1,5 year old kid who was having real fun running through the instalations, while we were wandering around in critical mood.
