  • The house isn’t massive, but displays original or family donated furniture to show how it would have looked. Lots of information available in different languages.  more »
  • Runeberg is not a household name outside of Finland, but his home makes for a worthwhile visit. The artwork and furnishings are beautiful. It is also away from the tourist hordes.  more »
  • When visiting Porvoo the tendency is to visit only the Old Town, with time to spare I decided to explore the "newer" side of the town and very glad I did. It felt to me as exciting as the old. I...  more »

  • The house was a fast visit since we arrived there 15 minutes before closing time. I have Museum Card so I was able to visit with no fee so I walked it around. There would have been a binder where no read about the place more but I decided just to look around. The Fledrika's historical (free) garden was beautiful and had a lot of different species.
  • Beautiful place with interesting history. They give you a guide book at entrance which contains all the information you need. The entrance fee is 8 euros for adults and 6 euros for students or pensioners.
  • When you are visiting Porvoo and you have spare time (while waiting for your bus back to Helsinki), the place that you should visit. There are two Runeberg museums: Finland's national Poet, Johan L. Runeberg (Father) and a famous sculptor Walter Runeberg (Son). I paid the entrance fee for 8€ for both museums and spent 40 mins in total. The museum is very near the city square and the regional bus stop.
  • Very beautiful and interesting. Loved the garden
  • The house (museum) is quite lovely and easy to find out based on the map. The museum staffs are friendly and willing to help or provide information about the house or the poet and his family.
