Mannerheim Museum, Helsinki

4.5
#8 of 50 in Museums in Helsinki
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.

  • The House stands untouched since 1952 when the Marshal died. A strange masculine environment. The tour gave a good picture of Mannerheim's life. Very worth seeing for the history buffs.

  • The museum is situated in the house in which Mannerheim lived for many years. A guided tour is provided for every visitor in several different languages. The furniture and the objects in the house are all authentic and well preserved. The tour allows you to explore the history of Finland and to learn a lot about this amazing national leader, Mannerheim. A definitely must see!
  • Located in Mannerheim's own, self-decorated home, the tour goes far beyond the Marshal's well-known exploits. Our tour guide was both informative and entertaining.
  • Amazing place for those who are interested North Europe history and old fashion war hero!
  • Extremely interesting place with friendly staff and very knowledgeable guides who make it even more special. Definetely worth visiting
  • Interesting museum for those who are interested North Europe history. Story of real old time war hero.
