  • Delightfully interactive! Keeps you/ children busy for 2 hours. Suits well children above 7 years. Rare and pleasant experience, highly recommend! Not what you would expect from a museum. TIP: Look for the Mirror mirror in the wall.
  • We went there to learn more about Finnish history and bright, it's a lot! The exhibition starts in the Stone Age and goes all the way to present-day Finland. The exhibition is very interactive and therefore fun. I also really like the fact that there are free audio guides. You can spend several hours there.
