Only if you are into Art you have to go here, otherwise you might save the 13Eur on something different.

It is a great medium size museum but nowa days part of it is going through renovations and that makes it rather small.

A very nice museum. When we went, there was a brilliant Sibelius exhibition, which was well worth the entry fee. There is also a nice cafe. It was not busy, so we had a peaceful review of the exhibition.

I went to see the exhibition on Sibelius, lovely photos, videos, quotes, artwork and a lot of music to listen to. Very well done. Also some nice Finnish art work to see in the permanent exhibition.

This museum is right across from the main Helsinki train station which makes it very easy to get to.

The exhibit that took up most of the museum was the Jean Sibelius exhibit which I... More

To take note that the third level is still closed for renovation of the roof and it'll be opened in some months. At the moment the highlight of the museum is the exibition of Jean Sibelius (sculptures and more) lasting till the beginning of... More

We visited Helsinki on a day trip from Tallinn and this museum was the highlight. We enjoyed the Sibelius exhibition. It's not a big museum but there's plenty to see in a couple of hours. The only criticism is for the cafe which served the worst meal we have had for some time (horrible salad bar and a weird tomato... More
