Really enjoyed this museum. The exhibition was superb. I was just disappointed that they didn’t have postcards or books to accompany it

This is included on the Helsinki card. The description in there was misleading unless we missed something, there is nothing there apart from photographs, nothing on the history of photography. This is definitely not worth paying 10 euros to visit. There seemed to be three...More

Nothing spectacular, a decent photography museum with changing exhibitions. In the same building there’s also a theater museum as well as a hotel & restaurant museum. If it is worth to visit depends on the current exhibitions.

This museum presents exhibitions of Finnish and international photography. The most interesting for us was the exhibition 'Elsa & Tyyne 1918 – war photographers by chance'. Many of the photos were from Helsinki, 100 years ago.

The museum is not large, but their exhibitions are usually very good and interesting. I also like the atmosphere in the museum: an old industrial building turned into a cultural centre. Kaapelitehdas (cable factory) has three small museums, houses cultural events, a circus and exhibitions...More

We liked the series with pictures of nature (Bear 1 - 9), as they were beautifully shot. Also the pictures of ancient landscapes were impressive. The rest, to us not so much.
