The museum is located in the inner-city Design District of Kaartinkaupunki.

The museum is easily reached on foot from the city centre. It is also reachable by tram 10 and by bus 24 – stop at St. John’s Church (Johanneksen kirkko).

Accessibility

Built in 1899, the museum building is not fully wheelchair-accessible.

The museum does not have an entrance with no access barriers. The most convenient entrance for disabled visitors is located in the inner courtyard of the building.

The courtyard entrance has a stone doorstep, with a metal ramp proving better access. The door is locked, and visitors need to ring the buzzer to have it opened. Inside the door, a ramp leads to the lift.
