Small museum. Nice exhibit Dreams. Also the winter set was ok, but I especially enjoyed the Dreams with the hospital for birds 😍 and gates.

Kuopio Art museum had several temporary exhibitions when I was there. All focusing on Finnish and regional art, both older and new. The museum is not too big and well worth the visit. Staff is very friendly as well.

This two floor museum is inexpensive (5,50e/adult) and always has something interesting to see. Upstairs contained Finnish paintings and other fine arts, and some information about Juho Rissanen (local famous artist). Downstairs there wete some interesting 3d videos related to dreams.
