  • Whether it be just to explore while the new Museum, which for some reason has not been in the past's. I do not know why? A nice Museum and wonderful, a wide range of exhibitions, and each of them found something surprising, admirable, and even a bit of a pelottavaakin.

  • Zoltan Popovits, excellent exhibition until January 9, 2017. You still have time! 'Regular collection' also available, remember to visit.
  • Loved it! First of all, museum offers a lot of interaction - you are invited to participate in a competition, challenge or a quiz to get a prize (e.g. ticket for another visit, or a book). There are 9 floors in the museum. Enjoyed an exhibition about neo-impressionists: well-explained and presented. Another exhibition - a crime to solve. With a guidebook you are offered to solve a murder of a girl. Interesting concept, weird story.
  • Awesome place! Very interesting Art Museum in heart of Helsinki!
  • I enjoyed the visit, some good pieces
