My Helsinki: Didrichsen Art Museum and Backyard

I am bit late with this post as I've taken these photographs over a month ago, but I really want to show you this beautiful place. This was my first time visiting Didrichsen Art Museum in Helsinki. My husband and I went to see the exhibition of Edward Munch's works and as much as we loved the exhibition (especially his prints!) we were also pleasantly surprised by the museum building itself and its backyard. It feels more like a little park with pine trees, blueberry bushes, beautiful sea view and a collection of sculptures hiding in the corners. We had a very relaxing time walking around, listening to the waves and looking for hidden art treasures. The museum building, designed by Viljo Revell, one of Finnish best known architects, is very interesting too. I loved the huge windows that reflect blue sky and water as well as cozy rooms on the inside, that feel so quiet and tiny even when full of visitors.
