  • Nice place to get lost for several hours. You can touch some exhibits (dream come true), use free audio guide and enjoy multimedia support. And they have a collection of mittens, how cute is that!
  • Great museum, very well explained and lots of variation. Count over 2 hours for a visit. Best Museum I've been to in a long time
  • Top class museum set in a beautiful building. Several interesting exhibitions meant we spent over 3 hours here. Feel like I understand Finland a bit more now! Highly recommend.
  • I went here to see the collection of Tom of Finland which was highlighed on the website, but I couldn't find it. I didn't have time, so I may have missed it. The presentation is very good. The entrance fee is correct. If you're interested in Finnish history, this is a good place to spend time.
  • Good to know Finnish culture and history. Not too big but not too small. Easy access from central and nice park in front.
