  • The scenic location is half the experience. Visit in good weather.
  • The buildings themselves are wonderful but the name of the museum is deceptive as apart from a small and very interesting display, the museum seems to be devoted to modern art of the sort that I do not much care for. I would have loved to have seen more art and objects by - or at least relating to Gallen-Kallela.I also though that I would learn more about what the interiors were like in Gallen-Kallela's day, but left the place very disappointed.
  • Good atmosphere
