An interesting city is an international city

Welcome to the Guggenheim Helsinki website. This is a compilation of information about the Guggenheim Helsinki project and how the proposed museum would affect the cultural life, attractiveness, vitality, tourism and economy of Helsinki.

The purpose of the website is to offer a basis for public debate about the terms and conditions on which a Guggenheim museum could be established in Helsinki and how that museum could benefit Helsinki and Finland.

This is not an official website of the Guggenheim Foundation; it is maintained by the Finnish communications consultancy Miltton at the request of the Guggenheim Foundation.
