  • Really interesting museum. So many things to see. There's even a typically war time cafe build inside the museum. You can have a traditional finnish delicacy "munkki" there. 
  • Well-done and informative exhibition on Finnish armed forces from the 1800th century to the present time.
  • A surprisingly nice museum, that gives an overview of the military history of Finland: the Swedish period -1809, the Russian Empire period 1809-1917 and the independent period with the Winter War (1939-1940) and the Continuation War (1941-1944). We spent ca 2 h here when we visited it.

  • A great Museum, very many interesting exhibits. Especially liked the hopper model with sounds. The staff speaks English, all signatures in the Museum are duplicated in both Russian and English.

  • A good Museum of the winter war. A lot of interactivity. Good scenery of shelters, trenches, weapon emplacements. Sorry, info in Russian No. Be sure to visit all the people interested in history of the second world
