I wonder whether 'auki' is interchangeable with 'avoinna'. Any comments?

Yes, you can use both! Avoinna is more often used about places with opening and closing times, like a museum in this case, etc. but in spoken language people use "auki" more often.

Jee, kiitos!

I've been to Finland plenty of times and only noticed 'avoinna', that's why I asked. 'auki' is a novelty to me but if Finns use it more often, I'll learn to use it, too ;)
