Mannerheim Museum, Helsinki

4.5
#8 of 48 in Museums in Helsinki
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.

  • We got a guide just for the two of us. The guide was really enthusiastic and it was very nice to listen to his opastustaan in the different rooms. The place was interesting and there was a lot of very interesting objects and photographs, etc. Highly recommended place to visit blogs for those interested in the history of Finland.

  • Only guides tours available, but those are very interesting and well done. Highly informed and engaged guides. Definitely worth a visit considering that the man is THE national figure of Finland.
  • Great tour. Interesting museum with lots of historical facts on Finland. A must see!
  • A very interesting man well worth a visit.
  • 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.
  • Because Mannerheim is the most important finish figure oficialmente 20th century.

Where to stay in Helsinki

Set yourself up with easy access to many of Helsinki's most popular tourist sites by staying in the city's bustling and modern center. You'll find that the area is packed full of shops, restaurants, and bars, plus it's conveniently close to both the city's main train station and energetic waterfront. Though there's certainly a range of options when it comes to big-name hotel chains and upscale accommodation, prices are generally higher throughout most of the center, so consider staying at a hostel to cut down on costs. Hostels typically offer a solid location in or near the city center at a fraction of the cost of a big chain.
