Natural History Museum (Luonnontieteellinen Museo) reviews
The nature's of Finland along with plenty of interesting information can be provided in this place. It is really fascinating more »
Good museum in a central location, only short walk away from the train station and bus terminal. The entry fee is a bit steep but you are allowed to come and go from the museum with the same ticket... more »
Beautiful museum, very interesting exposition. Everything is deeply thought, with a little of drama and a lot of scientific facts. Awesome for kids, good for all ages. Signs suggest to leave child carriage by the door to use beautiful half spiral stairs, but they also have a small elevator.
Great place to spend some time! Very well done. Only some parts in English though... but at least animals names are always also in English. Kids love it as it has really many stuffed animals that look alive
