I've visited VB photography centre quite a few times over the years, as I studied photography close to Kuopio for a few years. The exhibits have always been beautifully organized, even though I've sometimes had issues in deciding the order in which to walk around....More

Visited this place together with my husband. The National Geography magazine's 50 best photos exhibition was really good and the museum premises in an old house were nostalgic.

Small and old wood house with smell of history. Changing exhibition of photo art. I visited Meeri Kouraniemi Transitions show. Pictures of people from Namibia,Somalia, Mexico, USA with societal questions and observations. I think the value of this pkace depends on show. This was pretty...More

Very limited number of objects without explanation. It is hard to spend there more than 30 min with the current exhibition. 8 euro entrance fee.

The exhibition in summer 2015, A groovy kind of life (photos by Mark Hayward), displays maturition stories of rock legends and Hollywood stars such as Brigitte Bardot and Marilyn Monroe. Great pics which will be sold after the exhibition.

Worth a visit, old photos and newer ones, depending on the display. In the cellar there are old photos from Kuopio.
