Very interesting museum. At the moment there is a Finish design exhibition. I found it very interesting because it shows how the country developed after its gain of independence in terms of architecture & design. Also all painting exhibitions are very interesting. Very central location of the museum.

As a huge Tove Jansson fan I went here specifically as they have a permanent Tove exhibition. Unfortunately it was a lot smaller than I had expected, beautiful work and it was a nice touch to see the restorer working in the exhibit in person.

This is a very interesting museum of modern and contemporary art with a permanent collection and changing Finnish and international temporary exhibitions. I was lucky to be in Helsinki during the Yayoi Kusama exhibition (and before that, the Ai Weiwei exhibition!). It was tastefully exhibited, taking up a large part of the venue. The staff is always very friendly, the... More

A good place to learn more about Nordic/ Finnish artists, with exhibits on famous Finnish artist Tove Jonsson most worthy. A bit disappointed that much of the exhibits were closed, perhaps prepared for the busier summer season. Probably explained why the charge was only EUR5 instead of EUR10

Visited the Yayoi Kusama exhibition which was weird and wonderful! Had a great time in the large exhibition spaces taking in the artwork. Staff were friendly and helpful. Definitely worth a visit!

Saw Yayoi exhibit when I was there. Was quite happy to have caught this exhibit. It was an interesting one to see into her past.

HAM is conveniently located in the center of Helsinki, on the second floor of Tennispalatsi where the big movie theater also is located (which allows for a 'cultural combo' in the same building, by the way). My own daytime combo this Thursday was a mix of work and culture: I went here during my extended lunchbreak to catch the Yayoi... More

Went to the Yayoi Kusama's In Infinity exhibition and it was definitely worth a visit! Even though there was a long line for the tickets, the cashier was fast and everything went smoothly. Reserve 1€ coin for a locker to store your belongings!

Yayoi Kusama: In Infinity, exhibition is fabulous, entertaining and mind-blowing exhibition, you really ought to see if you can (exhibition is closing during this wk). There were plenty of brilliant art to see and explore. Huge amount of people were visiting the exhibition during the weekend, so prepare time to see at least the most essential art works.
