This is one of those unassuming places which don't really advertise themselves but if you're a friend of fine arts, it's certainly worth a visit. Open only for a few hours a day. A cool, peaceful haven after a hot day; we almost got the whole place for ourselves.

A well-kept building with an interesting collection, especially highlighting the late 19th century Finnish art, antique furniture and silverware. Fascinating souvenir collection. At the time of our visit the temporary exhibition was about Catherine Val. Every display room has small info on the original owner of the collection (Kustaa Hiekka) and his family history. Don't expect an action-packed experience with all the modern gimmicks, but it's not some forgotten dusty warehouse either. A walk-through takes about an hour.

The staff were friendly. Right inside the main doors we were presented disposable shoe covers(!) to wear during our visit because of the vulnerable original carpets. Didn't bother us. Remember: all photography is prohibited inside!

Excellent Art Collection for those who love good old art. Situated close to Pyynikintori. Not open every day, so check beforehand the opening hours.
