WHAT I THINK: I enjoyed my trip to this museum (which is more of an art gallery than a museum)! It is situated in Varjota, a cute, bohemian area with a smattering of coffee houses and restaurants, as well as some old houses in the midst of lots of highrise apartments. This is definitely a worthwhile place to visit and you can make your way to one of the area coffee shops or restaurants after your visit!
