  • An interesting artist's home in a beautiful location but disappointing that no art of Gallen Kallela appears. Cafe in separate building, very nice.

  • I enjoyed a winter walk to the museum and the experience was remarkable. If you would like to know about the life of the artist and his family, this is a good place to start. If you would like to know more about his art, however, go to the Ateneum museum, because the artwork collection there is much more impressive.
  • Not so much to see inside.. there are a few paintings on the first floor and a nice view on the upper floors. There is quite a lot of history if you like it. Not interesting for kids btw.
  • Quite small and intimate gallery, but of course the most important is the exhibition you're viewing. I enjoyed the one I visited immensely.
  • It looks hidden but beautiful, historical and the best coffee bar. A nice arena for summer weddings too.
  • Galken-Kallela's (one of the seminal artists of the Golden Era) studio. Beautiful location, nice cafe, changing exhibitions of varying quality.
