This museum presents exhibitions of Finnish and international photography.

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.
