... With all family. Everyone gets a thorough overview of findings from different eras up to 8000 years back. My 8y old boy was keen to learn about Finnish history. On the top floor they have a separate playroom for kids as well (see pics).

Extremely well laid out and incredibly comprehensive with exhibits loaned from around Scandinavia. Everything is...More

Beautiful place with lots of interesting exhibits from the earliest prehistoric artifacts of (presumably) the first people living in Finland through to the modern day. The variety of exhibits is really amazing - there are traditional exhibits of artifacts in cases, but there are also...More
