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 offer than if you are "just passing through". Interesting in...More

I enjoyed both a permanent and temporary exhibition. A permanent is rather small but informative and from there I got to know about some hidden impressive buildings that are not mentioned in other sources. A temporary one was also good. Мне понравились и временная, и...More

The exhibition is very boring. The topics themselves could be interesting but the way it is presented just dull. Further the exhibition lacks English descriptions. The exhibition is tiny and expensive. It has literally the worst museum I have been to in the last 5...More

Design museum is a block away and both may be visited easily at the same time. When we visited, the highlight here was a survey of the history of hospital architecture in Finland. Of some value, but clearly developed with a limited budget. Interestingly (or...More

The museum is quite small with two floors. One of the floors had a temporary exhibition on hospital architecture competitions in Finland with pictures and a few models; the second floor had 1/3 of the floor dedicated to Finnish society developing up to the 70s,...More

We were very disappointed with the size of the museum. There was very little to see for the price that we paid. Only the temporary exhibition caught our attention but it was also very small. We learned very little about Nordic architecture which I think...More
