It was a rainy, cool day so we decided to check out this Museum. It was an amazing museum. The only drawback as that most info was in Finnish/Swedish with minimal English on most of the placards. Other than that, well worth the price.

A great walk through history from the moment the universe was created, lots of explanation about how and what made it conducive to life and how. Fantastic exhibits all grouped into age spans, from, if I recollect well, 600 million years ago to present day....More

Animals, birds, fish, plants, minerals. Finland, world & history of life. Impressive whale and dinosaurs skeletons. Huge amethyst rocks. A few exhibits invite you to touch them. Kids really liked it.

The building is an old Russian boy school from 1913. From 1923 it has been a Natural History Museum, part of the University of Helsinki. It is easy to spend several hours here. The museum also has a cafe and a souvenir shop.

We were looking for an attraction that will not take much time and energy and this museum was the perfect answer. We spent about two hours there and the kids really enjoyed the skeletons - figuring out which animal each skeleton belongs to, and the...More

The exhibitions are well made, but seeing filled animals room after a room, it gets boring. I would have wanted to see more of nature stuff, stones, ice age theme, pebbles, but that side was very very tiny and it is so much about the...More
