Even with the prehistoric exhibits under renovation, the Medieval and traditional folkway areas were wonderful. Beautiful paintings of scenes from the Kalevala on the ceiling of the lobby. Small cafe and gift shops as well! We went for free on Helsinki Day but it's also free for Museum Card holders and discounted for students.

A large museum with a bit of everything in it from art, to history to science. Ideal for kids given the nature of the exhibitions. Entry fee is small and worth a visit.

Museum showcasing Finland's history and culture, situated in an impressive old building walking distance of the center. On a whole, the museum is a little underwhelming for a whole country's collection, but the exhibits are interesting, well displayed, and mostly captioned in English. Most interesting was the religious items and those from the Middle Ages, as well as the Folk culture exhibit and the info about the Sami people. Free with the Helsinki card.

It's a place to know Finland's past. My favorite part was the life of Finns, including the Sami families. It would have been better if there was more exhibition about that. There's a huge collection of coins in the basement.

This museum memorializes Finland and its people from pre-history to the present. It is very visitor friendly. Strolling from one exhibition hall to the next is seamless. Most exhibits also have English language explanations. There is a room on the top floor that is an educational children's play area.
