Trip Report Helsinki - The Museums Travel Report

Jump to last reply

I heard a lot of “compact”, “stylish”, “cultured” when people are talking about Helsinki. Still, it seemed challenging to visit all museums on the list within 48 hours. Here are my recommendations of the 7 museums that I saw and it sort of explained how the “compact”, “stylish” and “culture” keywords are translated into the Finnish lives.

Helsinki Card: For museum goers, it's a quick and easy way to explore Helsinki without any hassle. This card also includes free public transportation in the city, Suomenlinna ferry, discounted price on airport shuttle and cruises to Tallinn and Saint Petersburg!

Museums like Helsinki City Museum, Design Museum, Museum of Finnish Architecture, National Museum of Finland, Helsinki Art Museum (Tennis Palace), Ateneum Art Museum, and Museum of Comp Art Kiasma are worth going...

One travel tip for budget travelers: Museum cafés! Many of them are good value with a nice view, food, and environment.....
