“Don't go there when only one floor is open”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 30, 2012

If only one floor is open, it's a total rip off. In this case, don't bother visiting the museum. Instead, just go inside to see the hall and see the cafe with the funky green chairs.
If the whole museum is open, it can be worth it. Otherwise, I'd recommend to go to the Taidehalli instead to see art from Finnish artists.

Great range of arts, housed in wonderful spaces. You may not agree with everything here but it does help if you come in with an open mind!

“interesting building”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 11, 2012

The museums architecture is the highlight. I was not impressed by the exhibits. Perhaps the next installation will be more inspiring.

“Interesting small art museum”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 11, 2012

All of the Helsinki museums are small, but the items are well displayed and interesting. A lot of "mid-century" modern displayed in the museums since most of it designed in Scandanavia.

“Great architecture and art”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 10, 2012

There were several fascinating installations and artworks on when we went but it is worth coming to to just see the architecture. There is no gallery map you just wander around.
