Learn about the life of a military hero and statesman at Mannerheim Museum, once the home of its namesake. Poised on a hill above an upscale residential neighborhood, the museum displays the artifacts of Carl Gustaf Emil Mannerheim, whose precarious childhood led to an interesting life in the military fighting for Russia and later against Russia. His education by experience is reflected in the many objects brought back from distant places as well as the broad range of subject matter represented in his library. The house is in its original state, with furniture and decor from Mannerheim's own collection, while the exhibits display medals and honors he earned. You can also view his extensive book collection and family portraits. Notice Mannerheim's uncomfortable-looking bed, where he kept strict sleeping rituals.
