Kiasma – Museum of Modern Arts

What is Kiasma Museum?

Fans of modern and contemporary art will find them wanting to go Kiasma, located perfectly downtown Helsinki and easily reached from anywhere in the city center. Many of the exhibitions presented here are quite controversial and sure to stimulate the guest's mind and senses. Since it is so easily accessible, it is a perfect place to fill in time in your itinerary or to just admire the architecture and take pictures of the magnificent building.

"Kiasma is a contemporary art museum located in Helsinki, Finland. Kiasma is part of the Finnish National Gallery. One of the leading museums of contemporary art in the Nordic region, Kiasma delights and provokes, impresses, surprises and entertains.

The museum showcases and collects art of our time. It seeks to make contemporary art accessible to as large an audience as possible and thereby to offer people new experiences and new perspectives on life. Kiasma is the perfect place to enjoy and experience art.

What does Kiasma mean?

Kiasma is Finnish for chiasma, a term that describes the crossing of nerves or tendons or the intertwining of two chromatids, the thread-like strands of a chromosome. The name is a fitting symbol for a museum of contemporary art: Kiasma is a place of encounters. It is an arena for the exchange of opinions and the redefinition of art and culture."
