The museum, which is 140 years old (2013) and one of the oldest in the world – was first founded in 1873 but has operated in its present premises, a former school, designed by architect Gustaf Nyström in 1894 in the neo-Gothic style, since 1978.

Design Museum Helsinki, Helsinki Reviews - Write a Review

  • Very nice museum with a nice exhibition. You can try a virtual machine. I liked the exhibition about scissors and what kind of art you can do with paper and scissors. One of the few museums with explanations in English.

  • Good museum, 10€ for adult, 5€ for students. There are 3 floors. Permanent exhibition is on main floor. You can spend around 1 hour.

  • Usually when I visit art museums, I stand in front of individual art pieces with my hand on my chin looking really focused, hoping to look like I understand what is going on. At this museum, because everything is segmented very well, I could stand in one corner with my hand on my chin collectively not understanding what is going on.

  • Great I formative and interactive displays on the history and evolution of Finnish design. I have visited twice and enjoyed both exhibits. However, it is the gift/ book shop that shines as the best part of the museum!

  • I liked it. A bit expensive however for the content provided. 10€ adult, we were done in around 1h.
