Zoo

Art Museum
“Surprisingly good modern art museum for a city of this size. They have an interesting permanent collection and changing exhibitions that often push the boundaries of art. Being a Finn myself, I love going to this modern art museum because the building and the furniture in the cafe were designed by a Finnish architect Alvar Aalto. So this place reminds me of home.”

“My favourite cafe because of the laid back decor, big pots of teas (great selection of tea, which is not very normal in this land of coffee drinkers) and good pastry. They also have a good list of little savoury things like salads and sandwiches.”
