Art Nouveau Treasure
Aug 2019
This is the home of one of Finland's most important architects. It takes a while to get to by train and bus, but worth the trip if you have the time. Amazing estate in the beautiful countryside, wonderful Arts & Crafts and Art Nouveau buildings, mostly to myself in the height of the summer tourist season. Wonderful walks in woods, country lanes.

Authentic Finnish Living
Jul 2019
This is a residence built by an architectural firm and later the private residence of one of the architects, Eliel Saarinen. It is 30 KM outside of Helsinki adjacent to Lake Vitträsk, or apparently White Lake. The building has a pitched roof, likely as a precaution to precaution against snow. The buildings are quire sparse. The grounds and lake are gorgeous.

I visit the museum once a year
Jul 2018
The museum is one of the places in Kirkkonummi where tourists come. It is a fine place close to lake Vitträsk.

Architectural visit
Aug 2018
Was here on a bus trip from a cruise ship. Home of famous Finnish architect Saarinen(the father, not the son who did Dulles airport, St Louis Arch). Nice small home that still much like it was in the 20th century. Small grounds and small garden but not much view of the nearby lake. Probably best for true architect fans

Great place to explore the authentic art scene and architechture of Finland
Jul 2018
I believe it is one of the most exciting museums you can visit in Finland. Takes time to get there but you will never regret about this visit. Amazing nature park and lake will be great chance for a picnick as well.

Enjoyable and educational house tour
Sep 2018 • Couples
Mr Saarinen was a successful architect and designed and built his home, which can be toured. Our guide told us about the history of this home and the interesting features built into the house. The grounds are quite beautiful, with sweeping views of woods and lakes.

If you have an interest in architecture, this is a good tour for you.

beautiful architects' home
Aug 2018 • Friends
This is a beautiful home and studio built and used by Saarinen and two other architects. The furniture and tapestries are works of art, and the guide explains many anecdotes. I have come before by bus but am not sure if that is still possible; we came by car, this time. It is set on a cliff overlooking forest and water, with a path leading down to the private dock and sauna.

Nature and architecture mixing well together
Jul 2018 • Couples
Most visitors see these: the main building and the garden - but don't miss the sauna at the lake. A beautiful path goes down, or you can take the stairs. There are app. 130-140 of them but take your time :-)

Breath of fresh air after being in the city
Jul 2018 • Solo
The house is beautifully maintained. The grounds are beautiful. There is a small gift shop and cafe on site. The doorways and stairs are narrow. They do have restrooms on the premises. Nice change of scenery after being in Helsinki. There is also a small lake the locals were swimming in. Apparently there are also wild blueberries
