I did not expect to find such a great art gallery in a shopping center. We wondered past multiplex theater showing American blockbuster films (disappointing) to find the oddly configured entrance to HAM. Two excellent shows - Tyko Sallinen and Cris af Enehielm. Equally surprising...More

This is a compact museum which is conveniently located close to kampii shopping centre and metro. Interesting exhibition on Tove Janson and modern Helsinki. Cloakroom is free and there is free wifi

This museum offers a number of interesting displays and is not too big. We particularly enjoyed the Tove Jansson section, including some Moomin pictures. Tip: free on the last Friday of each month

Normally very interesting exhibitions. Sometimes also internationally famous artists. Now they had beautiful layout of Modern living-exhibition. Finnish design and art.

As a huge Tove Jansson fan I went here specifically as they have a permanent Tove exhibition. Unfortunately it was a lot smaller than I had expected, beautiful work and it was a nice touch to see the restorer working in the exhibit in person.
