    A rather small museum showing the development of Finnish architecture. Interesting if you like history. The presentation is not customer friendly and children would be bored. The museum is poorly acce...  more »

    We were actually looking for the Design Museum - but came across the Architecture Museum first and bought a combined ticket to both. Clearly if you are "really in" to architecture this has more to off...  more »

    Small but very informative museum. The third-floor exhibit on the history of Finnish architecture was superb, bringing together economic, political, and architectural history in a way that taught me a lot about the country's development. The current second floor exhibit was a couple of dozen projects, some important, some less so, not particularly well presented. The building itself was superb. I would say that the history exhibit by itself was worth the time.

    Extremely small museum, which is quite expensive. The exhibition is uninspired,boring and generally lacks English descriptions.

    Worth the 10e entrance to see a history of Finnish architecture. Felt like a museum and not an exhibit.

    It's a smaller museum but would definitely appeal to those who appreciate architectural matters. We bought a ticket at the Designmuseo which included entry into this museum.

    The museum is not very big, and a bit too professional for a non-architecture student. On second floor there are some core features of Finnish architecture, and on third floor there is a brief history of modern Finland as well as its buildings. The city history is like the most interesting part for me.

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.
