  • There are many things to see in the museum. 3 Levels. There is this dark place about military war, when you walk passed a pathway, u will hear footsteps following you, quiet eerie.

  • We only had a couple of hours to see Finland. So my partner recommended this museum as a great option. We both enjoy museums. ,☺ I was very impressed with all the details and different interpretations of languages. They have a cafe downstairs and 2 sets of bathrooms. The museum was very informative about Finland's history from 1917 to 2017. Could have used a little bit more time but it was a great visit. 👍
  • For individuals interested in the Finnish history, mythology and culture, this museum is one of the places to visit. I enjoyed the pre-historic segment of the collection as it was interactive and unique. However, that can't be said about the remaining collections. They were good, but not extraordinary. The museum, however, is user friendly. Visitors can easily work their way through different sections. I would definitely recommend taking the free audio tour. It surely enhanced my understanding while I was going through different sections.
