We stopped here by chance, and really glad we did. A truely little gem with very interesting art pieces. Not to be missed. more »
This small museum is absolutely wort a visit.The museum building itself is lovely: clean, airy modern architecture - and they have often very good, small and compact exhibitions. The museum's cafe..... more »
This is the second art museum that I have visited and I have to say this one beats the other one by a longshot. It's nice and roomy so there useally isn't a problem with too many people being in the way. The best part about this though in my opinion is the workshop that they have here. There you can create your own art and other people can see it. You can also find a nice cafe here too. I give 5/5
Great museum in an iconic Alvar Aalto designed building!
