This museum traces the history of Finland Back to the prehistoric days and comes back to the contemporary socio-cultural differences. This amazing museum holds a collection of over hundred years of painstaking acquisition.
There are historical as well as ethnological collections. There is an amazing variety of jewelry, utensils, furniture and other artefacts from various periods of history. The collection of weapons is certainly interesting to see, as is the collection of clothing used in the various eras. The most interesting part of these collections is perhaps how the paint a very beautiful picture of Finnish culture over the years while simultaneously weaving it in with the history of the place.
To add to this there is also a giant coin collection that is sure to be fun for anyone interested in philately. There is also an extensive collection of portraits and pictures that is worth a see. The museum is also home to one of the largest archives in the country. Since it is public you can see this part of the museum as well.

Beautiful and historical building in the centre of Helsinki. Great way to get a comprehensive review for Finnish history in a few hours. Nice cafe. Interesting changing exhibitions too.
Admission to the museum is: Adults - 12 €, Reduced (student, seniors) - 9 € but admission is free every Friday from 4-6pm. As expected, this museum is filled with all things Finnish, and a good way to pass the time while learning something about this fabulous country. I suspect part of the museum has recently been refurbished as there is quite a strong paint smell. The museum is interactive, encouraging you to actively engage in the exhibits. See the making of the Karuselli Chair, discover how significant and important the sauna is to this country, and the famed cardboard box for newborns. One of my favourite parts of the museum was the wall of past Finnish presidents - take a closer look at them and you'll be in for a surprise!
Loved it. An interactive museum experience about finish culture and history. Nice building, helpful staff. More than 2 hours should be spend on. Worth its admission cost.
Fantastic museum. Staff incredibly polite and helpful. Really enjoyed the re-modelled prehistory gallery. Coffee and cafe superb! Will be returning when next in Helsinki.
One of the most interesting and well-designed museums I've ever been to. It's intellectually challenging and engaging, but the displays function more as a series of thought-provoking deep dives related to Finnish culture as opposed to a relaxed general overview of historical events, so visitors with lots of museum experience should go with that in mind.
