Definitely a specialty museum. It's also a museum where the more you seek out, the more you find. A special exhibit at my visit featured Finnish designed buildings. Many have been built in China, and some are in Finland. The Finns have a reputation for...More

I am glad I bought a combined ticket to the design museum. Otherwise I would have been disappointed. Many architectural models of the Helsinki town, villas and history. The high quality "Architectural ceramic material porcelain" was originally developed in China.Finnish-Chinese co-operation work to introduce bamboo...More

I was expecting more, since Finnish architecture has so much to show and say. the permanent exhibit is tiresome, too much text. hard to read. yet- having said that. the story line is fascinating, I read it all, but with a great deal of effort....More

Museum of Finnish Architecture is a very small museum. There wasn't much to see inside. And the things being displayed weren't interesting anyway. Maybe the museum could have curated its exhibition in a more interesting manner. In short, not worth the money, time or effort....More

With a Design Museum combi-ticket you pay only 2 euros extra for this museum. It was worth that to see the building and its beautiful staircase, but otherwise not so much to see. I would not pay 10 euros only for this museum.

This is only worth your time if you're going to the Design Museum next door (the combined ticket is cheap) or on a Helsinki card. Also, you have to believe in reading signs as the exhibits are 90% sign, 10% architectural models. I found those...More

Only the top floor was open when we visited, as a lot of effort was going into new displays elsewhere. Photographs, historical background and detailed descriptions, mostly of Helsinki buildings, are arranged by decades, 1900-1970. There is also a video presentation of designs and plans...More

The museum is next door to the (for us) more interesting design museum but worth a visit with a combi ticket.

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
