Centrally located near the main railway station this is worth a visit. A very interesting collection of Finnish art, both modern and old. It takes you through the history of Finnish art. Everything is well presented and easy to follow.

I knew nothing of Finnish Art, and this was a well organized introduction. Also, the cafeteria is a good deal.
