Mannerheim Museum, Helsinki

(4.6/5 based on 180+ reviews on the web)
Learn about the life of a military hero and statesman at Mannerheim Museum, once the home of its namesake. Poised on a hill above an upscale residential neighborhood, the museum displays the artifacts of Carl Gustaf Emil Mannerheim, whose precarious childhood led to an interesting life in the military fighting for Russia and later against Russia. His education by experience is reflected in the many objects brought back from distant places as well as the broad range of subject matter represented in his library. The house is in its original state, with furniture and decor from Mannerheim's own collection, while the exhibits display medals and honors he earned. You can also view his extensive book collection and family portraits. Notice Mannerheim's uncomfortable-looking bed, where he kept strict sleeping rituals. Use our Helsinki tourist route planner to arrange your visit to Mannerheim Museum and other attractions in Helsinki.

  • Unique opportunity to step into a different world. Friendly and knowledgeable guides. The House is very well preserved and you can feel the history there. A must if you are interested in the events or Mannerheim. Recommended otherwise also.

  • The guided tour was really interesting. Guide it through all the rooms. Each of the rooms full of new stories. I would recommend though is not the Museum's visitor

  • Fascinating museum. Absolutely bizarre character who hoarded a lot of items from his travels across the east. House is much as he left it in the fifties. Was pleased to get an English speaking guide (although I didn't understand a lot of what he said) but the experience was a little short at €10 for one hour. Highly recommend a visit though.
  • A very interesting Museum, rich in exhibits and information tour held in Russian at no extra charge, just for tickets. Recommend to visit all people interested in history.
