Helsinki City Museum Or Helsingin Kaupunginmuseo - Review

The Helsinki City Museum was made to celebrate the heritage of the city. This Museum has an astonishing collection of artefacts, objects of interest and curious that paints a beautiful picture of the history of the city. Made as a place of conservation of culture, it has become a very popular tourist site now.

Over 200,000 objects from times old and new adorn the exhibits here. Also on display are several photographs that mark important events in the history of the city. From clothes to decorative objects to sculptures, there is a huge variety to discover. there is also an impressive collection of art from Helsinki that is certainly worth a see. They also play host to several temporary exhibitions that come from all over the world.

Sofiankatu 4 (Mad About Helsinki) is what contains a large chunk of the exhibits but they are also spread over to Sederholm House (which has the Children’s town exhibit), Worker Housing Museum (which is a look into Finland’s past), The Tram Museum (which is self-explanatory), Burgher house (which is an old house put up on display) and the Brylcreem Exhibition (which is Hakasami Villa). Be sure to check out all of them as each as a unique story to tell about the city. Also, visit the popular attractions in the city by following Helsinki itinerary 2 days.

Helsinki City Museum Or Helsingin Kaupunginmuseo, Helsinki Reviews

Google+
  • Small, modern museum in the middle of Helsinki at Senate Square. It has good restroom facilities and free lockers for storing bags and coats. Very well curated and maintained, this museum is free and has a very cool looking cafe inside. There are lots of exhibitions which keep changing regularly. The brief exhibition which tells the history of Helsinki is a must see if you are visiting Helsinki for the first time! There is also a nice exhibition which shows Helsinki of the past and compares it with the present using VR technology.

  • Marvellous exhibition and welcoming stuff members. Felt completely secure going there with group of small kids. Facilities for all ages are available

  • Interesting snapshots of life in Helsinki at various dates in last 100 years. It's a pity they're not in chronological order and more background information would have been helpful. Our visit was spoilt by groups of noisy school children some of whom weren't interested in the exhibits.

  • The kids area is amazing! Lots of things to do for them to learn and its free!

  • Great facilities (clean toilets, lockers), and cafe. Free admission. If this is your first visit to Finland or if you are unfamiliar with Finnish history, a visit to the Helsinki City Museum will supply you with broad insights into Finnish culture and history, e.g. civil war, prohibition and Finland’s fraught relationship with alcohol , 1808-1809 war, all of which inspired me to read further into these aspects of Finnish history.
