Interesting museum
Oct 2019
The Power of Thought is the permanent exhibition of the Helsinki University Museum.

It tells the fascinating story of the University of Helsinki from the founding of the Turku Academy in 1640 to the present day.

At the moment, the museum can be found on the 3rd floor of the university main building, located at Fabianinkatu 33. The entrance is free.

Origins of Finnish academia
Apr 2019 • Solo
A free museum in the main building of Helsinki University offers a wide view to our academic life starting from Turku in 1640 under Swedish rule. The splendour of the Russian period as the Imperial Alexander University is shown with grand portraits and the creation of the Neoclassical city center by C.L.Engel. The exhibition includes all kinds of scientific equipment, also the computer Linus Torvalds used to create Linux.

See the history of universities in Europe

The memorable thing for me was to see When and where the universities were established in Europe. And also a more thorough history of the early stages of the Finnish university establishment.

This museum has now a new location (Fabianinkatu) at the main building of the University of Helsinki. Museum is quite small but very interesting containing many nice historical details. There is no entrance fee. Go there and feel the university
