The section on prehistory (i.e. from 9000 BCE to 1000 CE) seems to be better than the gallery on the more recent periods. Archaeological finds are clearly presented in a consistent way. It is quite remarkable that they have dug up so much when the...More

As a Finn, I rarely go to museums in Finland and am now thinking that I should go more often. Biggest part of our visit this time was in Nick Brandts visiting exhibition, but the part of permanent exhibition left an itch of coming back...More

I really enjoyed this museum. From start to finish, the visit was great and I was really impressed. When you buy your tickets you get a token for a locker to store your cold weather gear in, the staff speak great English, you can refill...More

This building takes you from pre history to the 20th Century. It tells the story of Finland all those who have rules the country & its independence. You will learn about Finish culture.

Ideally you need half a day to really take in all this museum has to offer. You could skip the lower ground floor gallery as this deals with prehistory, and concentrate on the lavish clothes, furnishings and more on the other floors.

There is a lot here to excite those interested in ancient and medieval Finnish history, and culture. And there is a lot about Finland's religious history. The building itself is very very impressive. But, Finland's real story (and it is a very interesting story!) really...More

I agree with ChrisJ. The museum is not well laid out and the folks at the reception desk don't provide helpful instructions. You need to start at the lowest level and work your way up. Even then, the flow from room to room is no...More
