Well worth a visit just for the building which architecture is stunning. Even as a fan of a contemporary art broadly, not many of the exhibitions on offer really interested me but nevertheless a varied programme.

I have never met an art museum or gallery I didn't like. This one was very cool on many levels: the space age exterior, the interactive exhibits on offer, and the variety of media shown and showcased. I enjoyed every minute spent here and was...More

We were able to get free entry to Kiasma as it was the first Friday of the month. This is a spacious museum with a number of interesting exhibitions. Probably not for young children. I enjoyed the videos of the "touching lady' who crossed personal...More

I had a 15 hour layover in Helsinki and I had planned to visit Kiasma after deciding to pick one art museum out of the many art and design museums in Helsinki. Situated within a 5-10 minute walking from the Helsinki train station, Kiasma is...More
