“A dive into Europe history”
Reviewed 26 April 2014

I'm happy I visited Mannerheim Museum in Helsinki. The museum is actually his last house in Finland before retiring to Montreux for finals year of his incredible life.
The building was owned by Fazer's family and Mannerheim was renting it from them.
The guided tour is complete and the spokesman is good in his job, telling you a lot of details of Mannerheim life. When I ended the tour I asked myself how can a single man had such a rich life filled with travels around the world, adventures, wars and diplomatics event. The military decorations room is astonishing. I founded also curious the fact that he enjoyed the menu composing for guests dinners and parties.
What a great personality of XX century.

“Human sized house museum”
Reviewed 23 April 2014

This museum is the villa the Father of Finnish independence lived in, in what is now the attractive embassy quarter by the sea. Mannerhein also saved Finland from the Soviets. The house is full of his souvenirs, and the guides, who speak many languages are truly knowledgeable. It is not just Finnish history but the Second World War.

Museum visit includes a tour around Mannerheim's home, describing his interests and large impact on Finnish history. Tour guide was very informative, and the tours are possible to get in a variety of languages. I recommend for those interested in Finnish history!
