The villa has housed Helsinki City Museum activities already for more than a century.

Hakasalmi Villa

The attractive empire style Hakasalmi Villa offers changing exhibitions throughout the year. The villa is especially well known for its nostalgic photograph exhibitions.

Procurator and Privy Councillor Carl Johan Walleen had the Hakasalmi Villa built in 1843. The most famous inhabitant of the villa was Walleen’s stepdaughter Aurora Karamzin who had been a lady-in-waiting in Saint Petersburg in her youth and was later known as a wealthy benefactor. The elegant villa is therefore also known as the Karamzin Villa.

The other wing building of the courtyard has an intimate cafe. The museum premises can be rented for private use outside the opening hours.
