Subject: Korundi House of Culture Location: Rovaniemi, Lapland, Finland, Europe Title: Contemporary Finnish art and performance space ID#: 441594289 The art gallery shows contemporary Finnish art as well as being a venue for performances in the evening (jazz, classical music etc). The gallery is only a block from the bus station and has pretty good coffee. I dropped in several... More

Small, but fresh and surprising art museum- walking distance from city center. I loved the Joyce Majiski interpretation of North Myths (temporary exhibition). Unfortunately part of the museum was closed for renewal of the exhibition.

I visited the Korundi House of Culture with a guided tour in August 2016. The art collection is deliberately Lapland focussed and therefore quite landscape dominated but this was not a weakness. I found it actually a surprisingly good and eclectic mix of art that surprised and delighted. The main Reidar Särestöniemi exhibit was worth the entry fee in its... More

This was a great way to spend a morning. The artwork is local and tells stories about the region. Not all of the art appealed to me but a lot of it was quite moving. Plus, there is a "Culture Pass" to visit Korundi, Pilke and Arktikum for one lower fee that it made this visit all the more worthwhile.

A splendid experience. It all starts from the great architecture as the building is pretty stylish. If possible, have look inside the concert hall. The art exhibitions are of higher quality than you would expect in city as small as Rovaniemi. A very enjoyable visit & a nice little shop. It takes only 5 mins walk from the centre -... More

Small museum but great as a rainy day activity. Really enjoyed the exhibit downstairs. The one upstairs gave me creeps... Especially the model of a little girl sitting on a chair with her long black hair in front of her face (The Ring anyone?) immediately when you enter the room - nearly gave me a heart attack! So yes, the... More

Really nice introduction to Lappish culture and history. Very interesting. We had a good guide who happened to be German. Nice displays on the animals. Examples of Sami costumes, and stories of how they live. Well worth a visit.

Part of the culture pass ( with Arkticum and Pilke) this is a relativley small art museum but has great exhibits. (focus on modern art). If you are interested in art don't miss this little gem

This small art museum was a real surprise for me. I'm not a huge art fan but often visit galleries when I'm on holiday and this is now one of my favourites. I found the collections really interesting even without any art knowledge. The fact that it's mostly Finnish art was a bonus. I would recommend a visit- the entry... More

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
