On the 8th (Sat), explore the world behind art at Kansallisgalleria, make a trip to Hakaniemi Market, then explore the galleries of Mannerheim Museum, then learn more about the world around you at Natural History Museum (Luonnontieteellinen Museo), and finally contemplate the long history of Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum.

Plan my Helsinki trip by asking Inpirock to come up with tips and suggestions.

Tampa, USA to Helsinki is an approximately 15.5-hour combination of bus and flight. You can also fly; or do a combination of flight and train. Due to the time zone difference, you'll lose 7 hours traveling from Tampa to Helsinki. Expect much colder temperatures when traveling from Tampa in June; daily highs in Helsinki reach 65°F and lows reach 50°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 8th (Sat) early enough to travel to Kuusamo.
