There is very little, if anything, of Finland's history left out from here. From pre-historic times right up to modern day issues, there is a great story told. Place was not too crowded and easily reached from the market area. Either a 20 minute walk...More

Not much on history of Finland. Lots of artifacts, furniture, paintings, etc. probably more of interest to Finns.

It was a rainy day, so we decided to go there. I'm so glad we did!! For me the most interesting parts were the pre-historic exhibit and the recent history exhibit. The pre-historic exhibits (in the basement) gives you a great idea of how people...More

You can easily spend a couple of hours here! The amount of information and items, videos, etc. is very good and the exhibition is entertaining, touching and also very informative. You'll get a good idea of Finland's past and present here!

The exhibits and the outstanding guide made our visit most informative. Although the exhibits and the building could use an update, the visit was highly worthwhile, as we learned much about Finnish history and the oppression from Russia.

We enjoyed our visit to the National Museum. The exhibitions were well organized and English language option was offered. The route through the museum could have been better marked. Surprising was also that there was a ticket check in the middle of the museum.

I was a bit shocked at the admission charge (€12 each not including the temporary exhibitions). We spent half a day there so it is probably worth it. Lots on the very early history and lots on more recent history (all very interesting) but very...More
