Helsinki City Museum

The Helsinki City Museum has opened its newest museum in the Tori quarters. The museum is an overall experience with the milieu, exhibitions and indoor decoration telling about daily life in the Helsinki of the past.
 
The thorough renovation has turned the five old buildings and the modern extension built between them into a unique museum complex. The museum, designed based on the terms of free access, brings a historic milieu, previously unknown to most, to use by the citizens.
 
The Helsinki City Museum is the world’s only museum focusing on Helsinki. The daily life of citizens of the past is reflected both in the exhibitions and in the interior. Different time spheres mix joyfully together in the entrance lobby in the set of sofas inspired by styles of various eras from Art Nouveau to the 90s. The city animals by artist Jasmin Anoschkin hang around under the acorn lamps. Old labels and candy wrappers decorate the coffee tables, and the locker familiar from the Ruutuysi TV show stands in the corner.
 
Emotions, everyday life of citizens and personal experiences are emphasised in the new museum’s opening exhibitions starting from 13 May 2016.
