  • Nice museum with interesting artifacts. Might be a bit of a small collection on display to justify the price
  • Good. Maintained well but not very rich. Charged € 10 for entry per adult. The possessions are limited and scanty. I would not have regretted if I would have missed it.

  • Interesting collection of artifacts, but don't go expecting to learn a lot about Finnish history. The chronology is a little out of whack and they museum makes some assumptions about one's previous knowledge of this country's history.
