Museum is small in size. Handy for visits. You do not need more than 60 minutes of time. Place is never crouded. Exhibitions are modern and I find them well done. Curator is good and has obviously good connection in art scene.

The Pori Art Museum is quite small but it has some interesting art and it is situated on a beautiful river. They have a great café with some delicious local food, as well as a nice book selection in the gift shop.

The oil paintings of Eggert Pétursson are fabulous. An unique mixture of abstract and highly detailed they show us the multitude of the flora of Iceland. The museum is modern and nice. There is free parking and a cafe.

Changing exhibitions, so one can visit several times per year. The cafeteria is excellent and very affordable, and they also serve lunch, even on Saturdays. And you can read today's newspapers there as well.
