Helsinki City Museum Or Helsingin Kaupunginmuseo, Helsinki Reviews - Write a Review
Very nice place for children! The main exhibition is more entertaining then interesting. I missed more background information, how the city was founded etc. History only from 1890-today.
Great interactive exhibition. Free entrance
If you looking for something a little different to the regular museums then this is the place. It's quite a new museum and has lots of interactive exhibits including VR and iPads everywhere. My only slight issues is that all the videos that you see are only in finish and makes its difficult for foreigns so I would suggest having subtitles and it would make it much easier they also have a cool chill lounge on the top floor and a kids area.
Good compact museum of fun. But food price a bit high.
This is a brilliant museum to take kids, loads of hands-on and dress-up stuff and it's completely free. If you're in Helsinki with kids and it's miserable weather, take them here. There's a 60s/70s style flat which nostalgiacs will love.
