If you are an arts fan, consider visiting Kiasma, the contemporary art museum. It is very centrally located, near Sokos department store, and the exhibitions are well-thought. You may not recognise a single name on the walls, as Kiasma is focusing mostly to Finnish and Scandinavian art, but you could spot the next art superstar…
There is also a small shop on the ground floor, selling art books, oddities and everything in between. The caf? is nice, too, especially during summer time.
Kiasma is open quite late, to 20.30 from Wednesday to Friday. It’s closed on Mondays. The museum has free entrance on Fridays evenings (at least on December 2005), but it’s advisable to check the information on their website.
