Instructions for visitors

Please note that visitors over 13 years old are required to wear a face mask in all Kiasma premises.

Come to the museum only in good health. If you are ill or suspect that you have caught the virus, stay home. If necessary, contact health services.

Buy your ticket in advance in our online shop. When you arrive at the museum, simply show the QR code on the receipt at the info desk.

When paying for something in the museum, we prefer that you use a bank card or contactless payment. If you have a Museum Card, show it to the card reader at the info desk or download the Museum Card app. The app allows you to register the visit yourself: there is a QR code at the info desk that you read with the app. After successful registration, just show the app screen to customer service staff.

Remember to maintain adequate distance from other visitors and staff.

Maintain good hand hygiene:

  • Wash your hands as necessary and use hand sanitiser.
  • Cough and sneeze into your elbow.
  • Do not touch any artworks.
  • Avoid touching surfaces.
