This was a pleasant short trip. I took tram 4 from downtown Helsinki to Munkkiniemi, and from there I strolled along the shoreline to this museum, about a 30-minute walk. There is a shorter route, along the highway, but I'm glad I took the scenic...More

Great location, but a temporary exhibition distracted from a fuller introduction to this influential Finnish artist. The central tower with quirky bathroom positioning and wonderful views evoked the sense of a creative mind inspied by his natural surroundings. The 40 minute walk from the number...More
