The exhibits are arranged beautifully so you can see the animals (stuffed mammals and birds in the main) in their natural environment ... but there's something really sad about seeing so many stuffed animals, even though it's educational. None of the labels of common names...More

My kids enjoyed the displays of taxidermied animals in mock-ups of their natural habitats. I enjoyed them enjoying those displays, and I also enjoyed knowing that the displays were over 100 years old (most of the exhibits have not changed since 1907). If you look...More

About a dozen well done dioramas showing Finnish wildlife. We spent about half an hour, reasonable considering the low entry fee. The signs are in Finnish and Swedish but they will loan you a handout in other languages. The building is not well marked so...More

A very small museum located in a very old, beautiful finnish art nouveau building next to a huge park. It's built up like a circle of typical Finnish nature scenes. When I was there they also exhibited butterflies, insects and mummified cats - nice! I...More
