Helsinki Museums We Love

We traveled to Finland on the inaugural Finnair flight from Seattle to Helsinki on June 1. Now we’re lucky to spend a few lively, pleased, days journeying Helsinki and the lakeside Lahti place.

Head here to see snaps and some fun info from our flight over and a “get-to-understand-Helsinki” on foot excursion. We’ve moved alongside to the Lahti place now, but have some Helsinki museum spots to proportion.

Amos Rex Art Museum

Helsinki’s Amos Rex art museum occupies the web page of a former bus station and has a popular public rectangular up pinnacle and a sunken gallery under.

To give you an idea of the form of art the curators are interesting the town with, here’s an photo of a cacophony of reclaimed chairs flowing over the roof of the constructing that’s one part of a website-specific piece titled The Nest, by Japanese contemporary artist Tadashi Kawamata.

Finnish Museum of Natural History

Our museum team loves natural records museums, so we made sure to go to the Finnish Museum of Natural History, which has 5 permanent exhibitions, inclusive of Finnish Nature, World Nature, and The Story of the Bones.

We have been extremely joyful to spot a unprecedented two-headed calf on display as well as skeletons and specimens galore.

More Finland travelling tomorrow…
