  • This is a charming site that was worth the trip out from Helsinki. The studio features some minor works of Gallen Kallela and plenty family history. I spent a couple of hours there, including enjoying...  more »
  • In case, you know the guy, this is definitely worth a visit. It's Studio and the home of the artist, the location of the architecturally interesting House is impressive. The houses are very picturesque seaside. The cafe to be nice. Today at the 30.4 it was, but there was coffee and cake for the self service outside the wooden house. Nice, they really are the Finns! In the House, a lot of exhibits of the artist expect a entry for 9 euro. At the same time you can get a great impression one has lived with his family.

  • Galken-Kallela's (one of the seminal artists of the Golden Era) studio. Beautiful location, nice cafe, changing exhibitions of varying quality.
  • Beautiful building and nice views at summer but the art isn't anything spectacular.
  • Nice architecture and museum is small enough for an hour visit.
  • 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.

Where to stay in Helsinki

Set yourself up with easy access to many of Helsinki's most popular tourist sites by staying in the city's bustling and modern center. You'll find that the area is packed full of shops, restaurants, and bars, plus it's conveniently close to both the city's main train station and energetic waterfront. Though there's certainly a range of options when it comes to big-name hotel chains and upscale accommodation, prices are generally higher throughout most of the center, so consider staying at a hostel to cut down on costs. Hostels typically offer a solid location in or near the city center at a fraction of the cost of a big chain.
