Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Art museum and City museum at the same building. The atmosphere in art museum was nice. The entrance to the City museum was through a office building, not very exciting. A small museum shop.

The Poikilo Museums comprise the Kouvola Art Museum and the Kouvola City Museum in the Kouvola House. The exhibitions are changing. It is an interesting combination of art and history.

The Art Museum focuses on contemporary Finnish art. On our visit, there was an exhibition called 'On behalf of nature'. It consisted of works from the Heino Art Foundation collection which is one of Finland’s foremost collections of contemporary art.

The City Museum shows exhibitions related to the history of Kouvola. On our visit, there was an interesting exhibition called 'Manor Houses of Kouvola'. The exhibition showed what the past life was in Kouvola's manor houses.

I had little time left before my train was leaving, so I went to Poikolo Museot. The museum is rather modest, they have two small nice exhibitions, but there were rather few visitors. The museum is housed at the Kouvolatalo, which is a rather big house with one other museums and a concert hall.

Beautiful city, ugly centrum. Strength of Kouvola is surrounding in a beautiful nature. Poikilo unfortunately tries to be world class art museum, which is not true. Focusing on local extraordinary would be much more interesting. Also local things (art) at the moment is just a lousy copy of international art. Sorry.

There are actually two different museums, an art museum with exhibitions of all styles of art. Often they offer interesting viewpoints to local artists, but also some international artists as well.
Other museum showcases different aspects of history and life of the area. Very playful ideas in showcasing past life.

A very versatile space to exhibit all kinds of art. Small but well stocked museum shop. I feel it's a bit outdated not to let people take photos.
