Why locals love it

Sometimes the exhibits here are excellent and really give you a good picture of Finland's role in the modern and contemporary design spheres. Sometimes they feature a lot of minimalist chairs. Like, a LOT of minimalist chairs. We're just saying.

Why you should visit it

Wander along Korkevuorenkatu checking out the amazing Gothic architecture and you'll wind up at the Design Museum. Exhibits can be quite hands-on, featuring anything from chairs to fabrics to fashions and Formula One racing cars.

Special tip

Check online to see if their current exhibition is likely to float your boat (or get your engine racing).

I was really disappointed. It was a bit bland for me. Considering all the fantastic design the Finland is known for they could have done a lot more. Shop was underwhelming aswell.

The Design museum is definitely worth a visit. It has art from all of Finland's great artist and of different styles. Their special exhibitions are often top notch.
