Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.

This Jugend villa is located in a park by the sea in the Meilahti district. It was built in 1904. From 1940, it was one of the three official residences of the President of Finland.

The most important resident was President Urho Kekkonen who lived there 30 years 1956-1986 until his death. Since 1987, the villa has been the Urho Kekkonen Museum.

Tamminiemi is furnished the way it was in Kekkonen's time in the 1970s. In a separate building is the famous sauna which was used to entertain Kekkonen's domestic and foreign guests.

We took a guided tour here. The guide knew a lot of details, he was able to explain lots of details on a very lively manner! A real pro! He was able to explain the history of building and the president on a very exciting way.

That 's why we spend there 1.5 hour and every minute was a worth of it! Do not forget to have a look at the exhibition of president' s fishing equipment and other items. Also the photo exhibition was really an exciting one!

In summer time the tour includes also to visit to the famous Tamminiemi sauna.

I will get there again just to see the sauna!

Urho Kekkonen is the legendary Finnish president whose time in the office was heavily marked with Cold War. This beautiful villa by the sea served as his home during his presidency and up until his death. The villa is preserved just as it was during his time.

Urho Kekkonen was fanatic about Finnish sauna and built a luxurious one for the villa too. This sauna became the most famous one in Finland with lots of political scheming taking place there!

You can visit the museum all year around, and the scenery is always beautiful. However,
the sauna is closed for winter season - and so is the cafe (which is very nice).

Pro tip: Do get a guided tour if possible: the guides are excellent and know every story behind every piece of furniture, vase or a lamp shade!

We took our friend to see Seurasaari and on our way we stopped to this museum. It's an residence of Finnish late president Urho Kekkonen. He lived there until his death. It's modest but interesting. Original decor and art. I can't even imagine how much history was made inside those walls. Entrance fee. Next to his house is also a small cafe.

Visited this museum 12 years ago, took some other friends with us to this museum this time. Seems a little bit forgotten among tourists, only a small group there together with us. The museum take You approx 50 years back in both architecture and politic. Well worth 1 or 2 hours of Your day.

The museum is full of history, and one can really sense it. Getting there by bus is easy from the city center. Prices aren't too high. The staff was brilliant and answered any possible questions. Cafe Adjutant is also worth visiting !

Our group of friends attended a guided tour in president's residence. It was worth listening to get the details and facts about history.
Art, architecture, sauna!

What a lovely Place by the sea and in the middle of peace and quiet. President Kekkonen and his wife lived there and sometimes worked also. Now the old, interesting building is a museum full of history. If possible try to join the guided tour, worth it. And there is a small cafe with very friendly staff.

Kekkonen has been "the boss" and could see him walking around the house and the garden. Good that the home has made as a museum. Easy to walk around without a guide. At the same time it was nice to see Miss Universum Anne Pohtamo's dresses. Sauna is must to see!
