Nice museum in the center of the city, many different rooms to visit. Currently hosts Mapplethorpe photos which is a huge plus if you like his progressive and blunt style. Also several interactive events for adults or kids can make your visit even more exciting. Every 1st (or last?) Friday of the month it has a free entrance.

I think, the Kiasma is daimont of Helsiniki if you know arts and modern artist. A few floors for exhibitions and new idea and wonderful freedom. Also you should ask about Kiasma theater and Seminarimum, at info desk. There are a fine hall for performance and speaking show. I like it.

The building itself is already worth to see. Fascinating architecture but sitll very functional. I found the exhibitions interesting and influential. Robert Mapplethorpe's photos were some beautiful, some touching and the 18+ section very schocking. In other collections I liked especially the installations. I visited Kiasma on the opening day after the renovating. Despite of my timing, it was yet... More

Architect Stevel Holl has designed this nice building for modern art. The building in ïtself is very interesting and so are the collections. The museum shop is really good and one can spend ages there looking at the books and brick and brack. Recommed the lunch and in summer time a drink on the terrace. The big statue right next... More

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.
