When are things closed? Only have a day...

I am planning a day trip from Tallinn at the start of September. In Tallinn most things seem to close on a Monday and/or Tuesday. Is there a day like this in Helsinki? I don't want to make the day trip on the day a large majority of things are closed.

Thanks

What "things" are you interested in?

The shops and market places run normally on Mondays & Tuesdays. The ferrry to Suomenlinna runs as normal too.

Museums on the other hand may be closed on Mondays. This is the custom internationallly I think. See links to opening hours at visithelsinki.fi/In_English/…Museums.iw3

There are no major holidays that would affect normal business in Sept.

Welcome!

My apologies for being vague. Not really interest in shops, but museums, galleries and the various maritime attractions.

Monday is not your best choice for museums, but the ferry to Suomenlina runs til 2 am. So if you can choose, come on a Tuesday or later in the week.

-National Museum and Ateneum are closed on mon, open on tue (maybe the most known museums).

-Kiasma mus of cont art: the same.

- Museum of natural history: the same

-Sinebrychoff art museum: the same.

-Amos Andersen art museum: open every day.

These might be the 6 best known museums and located in the city centre area.
