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.

ホテルから近かったのと、中身の展示はそれほででもなく、むしろ外観のほうが綺麗とうのを聞いていたので歩いて外観を見学しに行ってきました。元々は学校だったということですが、お城のような感じで非常に立派で素敵な建物でした。 more »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.
