  • Excellent place to visit, of course depending on the exhibition. Architecture of the building is beautiful. Maybe bit pricey at least when some of the exhibitions are not open.  more »
  • Almost every time we visit Helsinki we go to the Kiasma. The exhibitions they have there are interesting and you don't have to be an art critic to enjoy them. Be sure to visit the museum shop as well.  more »

  • The size of this art museum is good enough to explore for about 1,5 hrs with family. Not too big not too small. Love the museum artshop! Have the best stuffs to sell in a museum ever! Very arty. Had afternoon cake in the cafe, good for tasting Finnish pastry 🥮 💙
  • Went there the first Friday of the month (October) because the entry is free on that day. The exhibition is nice but I would not recommend it for children. Reading the explanations on the wall really enhance the experience (written in Finnish Swedish Russian and English) they were building the new exhibition on the 5th floor so it was nice having a free ticket considering not every floor was available
