what a lovely way to spend an afternoon! It's a living Ikea catalog! Don't bother with the Design Museum which is tiny and not very informative IMHO. Wandering the design district is far more informative and fun.

We love design, so it was exciting to see the district of Helsinki that is full of beautiful buildings and sculptures, from many decades. The Design Museum had a small but intense series of displays of popular and artsy design by locals. There were also a range of memorable cafes nearby.

Great area for shopping for household goods and to get decorating ideas. Too bad you can't shrink the fabulous furniture so you could bring them back home with you.

What can I say except impressive?! We loved everything about it, from the shops, restraunts, the people, and atmosphere. This district was close to the railway station and the city square and is my favorite district in Helsinki.
