Museum of Contemporary Art Kiasma (Nykytaiteen Museo)
Leading Finnish artists in the permanent collection include Nina Roos, Susanne Gottberg, Jussi Nivi and the homoerotic illustrator Touko Laaksonen, better known as Tom of Finland. Some of the international artists represented are Nan Goldin, Richard Serra, Andy Warhol and Cindy Sherman. In addition to its impressive collection of visual art, the Kiasma regularly presents performance art, dance, music and films. Innovative and engaging, the Kiasma is not only a world-class museum but also a laboratory for artistic experimentation and expression.
The focus is definitely on the Finnish penchant for the offbeat. The cafe and beer terrace are also very popular in summer.
the Tourist office was easy to fine and everyone spoke perfect English (good since we speak no Finnish), so getting our cards was a breeze.
The included bus tour was perfect - a nice overview of the city. Using the card when riding public transport was also easy and all the museums we visited accepted the Helsinki card without issue. All in all a good value.
We had great value from the Helsinki card. Probably went to several museums we would not have entered. The ferry trip was very fun.
The Helsinki Card is very worthwhile purchasing. I will buy one again on my next visit to Helsinki.
