  • If you want to know and feel nordic design, why not stop by? It was fun to watch without getting bored. Perfect for visiting the Design District after viewing

  • Small compact museum near city center. Considering the subject matter, think the museum could better present the exhibits.  more »

  • Must visit for designers and design enthusiasts. Learn about the history of Finnish design and it's evolution here. Well designed exhibition of renowned and iconic Finnish brands with detail description in three languages. Design museum has it's own cafe serves coffee and lunch. There are few cafes and good restaurants around also.
  • Nice venue, very cool old school building (not old-school, but old school) . I liked the standard exhibition, but the ones they had upstairs and in the basement went a bit over my head. However, the schedule calls for more interesting exhibitions later on. The gift shop was great.
