  • Amazing place on the third floor, but I always see a scope in its expansion. The museum is very well maintained and is free to enter. I think all the people in academia would love it, especially people from medical and geology background.
  • The university has a rich history largely intertwined with the history of Finland. A nice exhibition and completely free of charge.
