When art lover travels

tokyo

Small Museum in Harajuku, Tokyo, Japan

Museums are my expensive guilty pleasure while traveling. I would save a lot of money if I just skipped them altogether. But I can’t. Most of my friends don’t understand my fascination with museums. They are just houses full of paintings. But during my life I have learned that museums are a lot more. Look at the photo above. Isn’t room full of those colorful paintings, a few colorful statues and amazing view from window to outside world worth of paying a few euros? For me it is, for some people it isn’t.

Museum Stickers

Travel Blog Helsinki

HELSINKI, FINLAND

Have you ever left your museum pass sticker to wall full of stickers? I have so many times that I can’t even count them. Not that much anymore but seeing these sticker walls reminds me of my childhood. We used to do family trips to museums and usually (at least in Finland) they “mark” you with this sticker after you have paid the admission. And then after people leave this museum they stick the sticker to somewhere near by.

These sticker walls have always enchanted me. Every sticker signifies different person who has visited the museum. Did they like it? Where they just dragged there by friend? Maybe they are regular visitor or someone from far far away. I have always loved museums and especially the fact that those artworks, historic things or whatever the museums exhibits will all these people who will never meet each others share this experience without them even realizing.  Happiness, sadness, pure excitement of learning new things or even getting bored to death. It just feels magical to me.

But now I will stop this odd rant and just let you enjoy the photo. My summer holiday just started officially so I hope I will have time to write my blogs more than before. If you haven’t already, follow my Facebook and official travel blog more random travel related posts like this.

So, today I changed the layout of this blog. I don’t know if it is any better than the one before. However this one is easier for me to manage (read easier to share my instagram photos that will save my time…) So what do you think?

Art Lover’s Paradise

tate

Tate Modern, London, UK

I’m art lover. I have spoken about this before but I have visited museums since since my childhood. My family used to go to different museums on weekends when my siblings and I were young. Sometimes I hated it, sometimes I loved it. Nowadays I mostly love all museums I visit. Tate Modern was one of the best museums I have been to.

Sometimes people find it funny. Why do you like museums? Art is boring! Young people should be partying and not spending their time in old museums… I don’t even know why I like art and museums so much. Somehow walking between the different pieces of creativity makes me feel happy.

And maybe it has nothing to do with the art there. It may have everything to do with the fact that all these people around me are here for the same purpose. It’s kind of same effect as going to concert has. Mass of people all trying to full their life with something creative. Art, music or whatever being part of that group has always made me happy.

I’m sorry I don’t probably make any sense. This went quickly too deep and I never meant that… I will share new photo tomorrow so see you then and I hope you are having an amazing day!

The Lovely Art

interactive art museum kiasma colors

I love museums and I think I have mentioned that too many times in my blogs… But this photo really sums up why. Some people don’t realize how cool can art be. Usually we think art means old buildings full of even older paintings.

In reality art can mean colors, laughing until you can’t breath and finding peace inside of yourself. This art work was exhibited in Kiasma museum earlier this year. There was long line of people wanting to take nap in the comfy looking hammock things.

Cool, huh?

balloons

I may have too many photos of art in my blogs BUT this is my blog and I will do whatever I want… So like I keep telling you there is a lot of amazing and interesting art in our word. Not just the old paintings but everything and anything.

This photo is from Moderna Museet and maybe one of the coolest exhibitions I have seen. You got to walk between these huge balloons that took over the whole first room of the exhibition. Cool, huh?

Growing up with art

kiasma colorful museum

I love art. Short sentence telling you a lot about my childhood and the way I was raised. I can’t even recall how young I was when my parents first took me to museum. However I remember that my little brother was still small baby when we took him with us.

So my family has always visited museums. Everything from modern art to those “boring” master pieces from last century. I grew up with art so seeing this art work in museum Kiasma made me go back to my childhood. Interactive art for children to play with their parents. How cool is that?

Colors of museum

colors_museum

Last weekend we went to small trip with one of my best friends. Our first stop was our home country’s capital, Helsinki and more specifically modern art museum Kiasma. I have visited maybe too many times there with my family but for my friend it was her first time.

I totally loved the exhibitions they had. A lot of colors and interactions. This art work in the photo is from South Korean artist named Choi Jeong Hwa. Walking between these colorful hanging pieces was allowed and there was people of all ages having fun and smiling brightly.

People who claim that museums are only for old people are totally wrong!

Cool Museums

tokyo_ueno

Japan took my museum expectations to another lever. Maybe it’s because I am from tiny Finland but every museum I visited left me with awe. When I went to this one in Ueno park I had (surprisingly) good luck and it was free admission day.

Oh, I almost forgot… I got to see real mummy! #historynerd
