The boundary between fine art and design blurs at Design Museum, where a comprehensive set of exhibits cover all genres of design from clothing to furniture, and even advertising. Temporary and permanent exhibits showcase famous local designs, such as Tove Jansson's Moomin creations. Some exhibits are sculptures that take up an entire room, while others are functional designs that combine beauty and utility. On some evenings, the museum hosts a night with the artist. You can easily purchase a ticket the day of your visit; there are rarely lines or crowds.

  • 因旅行团自由活动时间三小时,没地方去又不喜欢买买买的节奏,就在这里搜到这个博物馆,进去门票是5欧每人,大概仔细点逛就20分钟的样子。里面有很多1899年到2010的产品设计。种类繁多,学设计的一定还是觉得有意思。 
  • One of the best designmuseums I've been too. Exhibition was creatively presented and put together.
  • Great space with great exhibits. What a wonderful time exploring the three floors of exhibit space. Definitely a must when visiting Helsinki.
  • Exhibition with Eero Aarnio's furniture design was great!
  • There were having a free exhibit while I was there. Otherwise it's about 10 EUR for an adult ticket which seems a bit pricey. The design exhibit is pretty good.
  • "Great way to get acquainted with Finnish design" This is a small though extremely interesting museum for design lovers or those simply willing to learn more about the history of Finnish design. The first-class collection encompasses the period from the end of the 19th century to the present days. There are also great temporary exhibitions. Highly recommended!
