Kiasma building by Steven Holl is always nice to visit. National gallery of contemporary art is a must visit museum. Surprisingly good exhibitions. Always something for everyone. For modern art and architecture lovers.

Contemporary is another level altogether though, and I walked out thinking that although there were definitely individuals' perceptions and opinions...More

Contemporary art in itself gathers mixed feelings amongst all, however it is worth visiting for both the exhibitions and the beauty of the building, as well as the views it offers as you climb each floor. The exhibitions that were on at this time offered...More
