A rather small museum showing the development of Finnish architecture. Interesting if you like history. The presentation is not customer friendly and children would be bored. The museum is poorly accessible for an electric wheelchair and own ramps must be used as there are uneven...More

I enjoyed the exhibits at this small museum. The displays here show Finland's history through its architecture. The top floor is definitely the best part of the visit, as it breaks down the differences in building styles in each decade with plenty of scale models...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
