Museum of Finnish Architecture

Kasarmikatu 24, Helsinki, Finland, 00130

The basics

Design and architecture buffs will love the Museum of Finnish Architecture bookshop, home to gorgeous tomes on the work of modernist taste-shapers and less celebrated studios who continue to deliver Finland’s signature clean, clear style. Exhibition texts are all presented in English and most travelers will find these informative displays the highlight of the museum. Like many Design District museums, entry is included with the Helsinki Card, which comes in 24-, 48-, and 72-hour versions.

I just picked up the card at the Excess Baggage Store showed her my voucher and voila I have the card. I’m going to use it for museums, hop on, hop off bus and all the cruises. I used it for the train from the airport. It’s great!!

Things to know before you go

  • There is a moderate charge for museum tickets.
  • Children under 18 go free and there are changing facilities and potties in the bathrooms. Families with strollers should enter via the courtyard: Buzz for admission and use the ramp. The exhibition spaces on the upper floor, the most interesting part of the museum, have thresholds.
  • Only the museum’s permanent collections have wheelchair access. There is an adapted bathroom in the basement but, at just 2 feet 10 inches (88 centimeters) wide and 3 feet 9 inches (115 centimeters) deep, the elevator will be too small for many chairs.
