The history art of Finnish glass
Nov 2019
The Finnish glass museum in Riihimäki, just 45 minutes from Helsinki, tells about the history and stories of Finnish glass industry and glass design. In the museum there is also really nice art glass and unique exhibitions.
Next to the museum is the old Riihimäki glass factory area where you can find also two glass workshops and see the art of glassblowing.

Many beautiful glass works are on display.
美しいガラスの作品がたくさん展示されています。
By the way,I was moved by the 「Glass Design from Finland 」Exhibition at the SUNTORY MUSEUM(in japan) in Dec 2012. I came to helsinki to see the work again.
ちなみに、私は2012年12月にサントリー美術館(日本)で行なわれた「森と湖の国 フィンランドデザイン」で感動し、再びその作品を観にヘルシンキに来ました。
At the same time I was moved again,I wanted more people to see .
再び感動したと同時に、もっと多くの人に見てほしいと思いました。

The history of the famous Finnish glass design
May 2019 • Family
The compact yet comprehensive Finnish Glass Museum walks you through the history of glass-making and design glass in Finland.

In addition to the good permanent exhibition the museum always has changing exhibitions and contemporary glass art on display.

There is a nice cafe/restaurant at the museum and the museum shop sells beautiful glass items. Close to the museum there is also the "hyttikortteli" -area of the old Riihimäki glass factory, which is a very charming place.

If you want something else but glass, right next door to the glass museum is the Finnish Hunting Museum, which is very interesting to everyone who wants more information on Finnish nature and the history of hunting in Finland.

A museum visit in the Finnish Glass Muesum
May 2019 • Couples
The Glass Museum is easy to reach not far away from the Helsinki- Tampere motorway. Now, they have a special exhibition of world famous Oiva Toikka works. He was/is really known for his birds. The museum has also a nice history of glass and history of Finnish domestic and design glass. Going through the exhibition takes not more than 1,5 hours.

Interesting museum
Oct 2018 • Couples
Finnish Glass Museum is located in Riihimäki. It is a half-hour walk from the city center.

The museum presents glass, glass art, and the glass industry and its history. The museum has a huge collection of glass objects.

The building is also unique. It is a former Riihimäki Glassworks factory which has been later transformed into a museum by the legendary Finnish designer Tapio Wirkkala.

Location is not ideal for travelers on foot from Railway station but is a must see, if visiting Riihimäki. The collection is beautifully presented and the display has some very unique glass-art. Thoroughly recommended!
