  • Remember that Helsinki is the city of design, everything is comfortably pleasing to the view, its bars, restaurants, hotels are up to date with the Scandinavian design. Worth seeing and enjoy

  • It was close to the hotel and I went to see the exterior of the exhibition because I had heard that the exterior was rather beautiful. It was originally a school, but it was a very splendid and wonderful building with a feeling like a castle.

  • Amazing place, well worth visiting and will be visiting again. Different events and great building. Thoroughly enjoyed it. Will be keeping an eye out on their next events for certain
  • It's smaller than what I expected, however very informative. BIG TIP: take combo ticket with architectural museum, so you will pay only 15€ for both of them, instead if circa 12€ each. Both museums can be done withing 3 hours (in case you are a big reader of all the info) otherwise you could make it faster.
