I regret for not having read the website before going. I was expecting this museum will have displays and exhibits about the modern history of Finland as well but it only came with the 16/17 era with the swede and Russia were in power and that's about it. The first room was with displays of bronze subjects, then comes with... 更多
Went on a Sunday. The exhibit has English as well as Finnish explanations. The collection of prehistoric items was extensive. You could take all day if you read all the explanations. This is a must for anyone wanting to understand which Finland is the way it is. The period from the Middle Ages forward was great with lots of textiles... 更多
A lot of great exhibitions. I particularily loved the world of religions exhibitions. It was very enlightening about a lot of different religions around the world. I was just sad that a lot of books about the exhibitions wasn't in english. I would have bought it.
While it appears to be an old church, the building was actually purpose built in early 1900's as a national museum. Staff were helpful in suggestions for how to plan our visit and free guide map provided was very useful. Easy to follow route in chronological order takes visitors from the stone age through to early 19th century. There is... 更多
Many interesting exhibits, personally I liked most the banknotes and medals awarded to Finns by other countries. There's also a chance to make your own puzzle and try out a simulator of a machine for cutting trees (I don't know what it's called properly), which is great! And the exhibition about religions was very educative.
If you are in a mood of reading then you should visit the National Museum. I personally like the building, it looks like a church on the outside. On Fridays after 16 the entrance is free. It has a lot of information regarding Finland from the times when the country didn't even exist until the 1960s or so.
Whenever we travel anywhere I like to drag my husband and three sons (11, 10 and 6) to a museum that will teach us something about the place we are visiting. Often these museum visits turn out to be among the highlights of our stay. Unfortunately the National Museum of Finland did not fall into that category. The building is... 更多
This huge museum has lots to offer, also for children. There are 4 floors (including the basement that offer a great display of bones, jewelry, paintings, clothing, etc. etc. Every different part of the museum represents a different time period. My advice is to stick to the map/booklet that they give you when you buy a ticket. Otherwise the exhibitions... 更多
