This 19th-century villa next to Finlandia Hall and opposite the National Museum has usually had very interesting exhibitions.

This time there was an exhibition of Jörn Donner’s travel photographs which were found after his death. Film director, writer, and politician Jörn Donner (1933–2020) made countless journeys abroad over the decades he worked as a reporter.

This exhibition has got a lot of attention in the Finnish media and I had high expectations. However, they were not quite fulfilled.

Compared to the other exhibitions at this museum, more effort could have been put into the display. Now it was mainly hanging photos on the wall and some texts projected onto the floor.

This time there was a new exhibition called ‘Streets of Crime and Love’ in this stunning villa from 1846.

Dozens of films and TV series have been filmed in Kallio that is a neighborhood in Helsinki. This visual exhibition is interestingly showcasing them.

Although Hakasalmi Villa is not a big building, there was much to see. The many familiar movies raised memories from childhood.

This Empire style charming villa is centrally located next to Finlandia Hall near Töölönlahti bay.

The villa hosts temporary exhibitions. At the moment, there is an interesting photo exhibition.

Ismo Hölttö photographed Helsinki and its residents in the 1960s, recording daily life during the decade of change.

Villa Hakasalmi is a small museum with changing exhibitions. This autumns State of Mind - Helsinki during the Second World War gave an interesting perspective on wartime Finland, especially Helsinki. Photographs showed what bombing did to the city, women, men and children but the most interesting part were the authentic messages from the past....which the secret reports on the mood of the Helsinki civilians showed. And it was quite odd to see Nazi flags on flag poles in Helsinki...Two-three hours is enough.

Lovely little cafeteria in the front yard of Hakasalmi Villa. Tasty pastries with fresh salad, good Latte. Nice owner.
Atmosphere of early 1900’s.

Good place before visiting the museum building.

Would not have visited this little museum except that we had half an hour to kill and the Helsinki Pass provided for free entrance. Most of the museum was devoted to life in Helsink in the 20s. The exhibits and information were mildly interesting at best, and not everything was in English though a lot was pretty self-explanatory. Go only if you had time to kill and happened to be in the vicinity.

A very nice little museum on the Mannerheimintie between The Music centre and Finlandia hall. An old Villa built in the middle of the 1840's it has been a museum from the early 1900's. There are a few steps to enter the building but once inside it seems wheelchair friendly with a lift from the first floor to the second. Welcoming staff who were willing to answer any questions. The exhibitions change, but until September the theme is Helsinki in the 1920's. About 10 rooms with old film shows, posters and exhibits fill each room, everything translated into English. I think non Finnish visitors would have to do a little bit of research into the history of Finland during the 1920's to fully understand all the exhibits on show. Although a lot is explained, if you have no knowledge at all many things might pass you by. But if that does not bother you too much and you just want to get the feeling of Helsinki in times gone by, then this is the museum to visit. Quite enjoyable.

This Empire-style Villa Hakasalmi is located next to Finlandia Hall near Töölönlahti bay. It is a historic over 170 years old villa and is today a branch of the Helsinki City Museum with changing exhibitions.

On our visit, there was an exhibition called 'Carefree Capital - Scenes from 1920s Helsinki'. It will take the visitor on an interesting journey 90 years back in time.

An idyllic cafe is located in the museum courtyard.

Hakasalmi Villa is a lovely small museum, which has interesting exhibits. You can easily visit it in less than 1 hour. It is centrally located with an easy walk from the railway or bus station and there is a Q-park parking garage close by. I did like the building and exhibits a lot, so I can recommend this museum for tourists and locals.
