Design Museum

Design museum tells the story of the Classics of Finnish Design. Visit the museum in Helsinki Design District!

Welcome to Design Museum, an internationally recognized national specialist museum of Finnish design. Design Museum researches, collects, stores and documents design, and displays it both in Finland and in touring exhibitions abroad.

Design Museum is located in the Kaartinkaupunki district in central Helsinki in the former building of the Brobergska Samskolan high school (architect Gustav Nyström 1895).

Finland is known internationally as a country of sports and design. Design Museum’s Collections Exhibition presents the history of applied art and design in Finland from the late 19th century to the present day. Finnish design has been influenced by factors including Arctic nature and the marked changing of the seasons. The exhibition displays the leading designers of different styles and periods, manufacturers and changes in the Finnish way of life through history to the present day.
