This museum presents exhibitions of Finnish and international photography. The most interesting for us was the exhibition 'Elsa & Tyyne 1918 – war photographers by chance'. Many of the photos were from Helsinki, 100 years ago.

I always love to visit the museum of photography when coming to Helsinki. This time they exhibited pictures of Finnish everyday life and negative portraits of Tanzanian youths. I like the location of the museum in the old cable factory. Lunch in the restaurant Hima&Sali...More

Depends what is on, of course, but the exhibitions we saw were great, including memorable, beautiful, sad, disturbing images. Excellent.

We liked the series with pictures of nature (Bear 1 - 9), as they were beautifully shot. Also the pictures of ancient landscapes were impressive. The rest, to us not so much.

At the museum there is now until 29th April (2017) an exhibition on food, animal rights and enviromental issues as part of the festival of political photography 2017 called "POST-FOOD". Interesting pictures especially the photos of Tim Franco, from the series Metamorpolis, taken in China.

We saw the exhibition of Taneli Eskola. Great photographer. Bit I think the lighting of the pictures was not optimal for them. More direct whiter light, less yellow light. So if you like photography, come and see and hope the conditions are improved.
