Mannerheim Museum, Helsinki

(180+ reviews on the web)
Historic Site
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.

  • A really interesting place, I had in the past been in passing. The door was in the queue for the yard. A house in kaivopuisto. His home, which apparently was all open views of the sea from his asuinaikanaan. The guide told us that he was able to get her home directly into the sea for a swim. An amazing place for esineine,,,. All visits are guided. I took part in the English group, the tutorial was great.

  • The visit of the museum consists in a guided tour (12€). Very well-done and really interesting, about the life and acts of Mannerheim but also the more global history of Finland from its independancy. Definitively worth it.
  • 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.
  • Very good tutorial.
