We spend about 1 hour there. There are 2 floors, and it is not a big museum. The day we came there were lots of people, all lockers for your clothes and bags were already occupied.
Entrance fee is €10 for adults, children free.

So far I've been to a few museums in Helsinki and the Design Museum is the most interesting one.

It isn't big so it's easy to navigate. There're sufficient English explanations on the things being displayed.

Currently there's an exhibition on Timo Sarpaneva which showcases some of his best and iconic works.

A good way to spend an hour or two.

You can find this museum about 400m off from the Esplanade. Entrance is free with the Helsinki card.
When we visited only the ground floor was open but even so it was worth a visit. It show range of products including scissors (I now know now why they had orange handles), a Nokia, clothes as well a furniture. We spent a happy hour there.
There is a small cafe there if you get a bit peckish.

This museum is well worth a visit. It goes well beyond furniture design and explores contemporary issues from a design perspective.
