Not every day that you are entering a presidential house ! The museum is nice and very well maintained. You will be immersed in the time of president Kekkonen, with no extravaganza.

The museum is full of history, and one can really sense it. Getting there by bus is easy from the city center. Prices aren't too high. The staff was brilliant and answered any possible questions. Cafe Adjutant is also worth visiting !

Our group of friends attended a guided tour in president's residence. It was worth listening to get the details and facts about history. Art, architecture, sauna!

Kekkonen has been "the boss" and could see him walking around the house and the garden. Good that the home has made as a museum. Easy to walk around without a guide. At the same time it was nice to see Miss Universum Anne Pohtamo's...More
