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

The exhibition is very boring. The topics themselves could be interesting but the way it is presented just dull. Further the exhibition lacks English descriptions. The exhibition is tiny and expensive. It has literally the worst museum I have been to in the last 5...More

A fairly small exhibition of Finnish architecture. We particularly enjoyed the short films and the unusual yet comfortable seating.

This only cost us 4 Euros each, because we're students, but it still felt like a rip off. The museum is EXTREMELY small. Basically a room with some posters about Finnish architecture and ~4 small building models. The most impressive architecture in the museum was...More
