. Kiasma has two to three larger and numerous smaller exhibitions each year, featuring both Finnish and international artists.

The museum consists of five floors, every room and hall having a unique shape. The experience of space may even change depending on where the visitors are in the rooms. The building and its beautifully curved walls create quiet but always varying backdrops for artworks. In addition, Kiasma has a theatre showing art films, video art, contemporary theatre and performances. You can also find a small museum shop on the ground floor with a decent selection of design and art books. The store is well-stocked with finnish books and comics.

When the museum was being built, the biggest debate was about placing the building too close to the statue of a former president and war hero on horseback. However, once you step into the museum, you can see the statue better than ever before. From Kiasma there is also a good view at the parliament house and northwards. Soon after completion, Kiasma became one of the architectural landmarks of Helsinki.

The grass field in front of Kiasma is during the summer months an active space where skateboarders and teenagers hang out. On sunny summer days Kiasma’s bar terrace is a great place to have a drink and take a look at what’s going on in Helsinki.
