Doubble headed Veal

The natural museum is a great place if you are interested in the Finnish natural history. The eye catcher is the double headed veal.

The museum is not that big, but still it really uses its square meters efficiently. It covers prehistorical nature, Finnish nature, all types of geographical areas. The animals are beautifully setup, a lot of info or items to touch, pull, lift, etc. Very friendly staff, we could store our luggage in a separate room and they explained where we could... More

This is fairly nice natural history museum with lot of exhibits. Nothing overly fancy or remarkable, but decent. For small children there could more interactive stuff.

It has been my wife's favourite museum since childhood. Last year she bought an annual ticket for 50 euros and visited the museum for 20 times or so. Great value for money, now it is part of the Museokortti (museum card) concept. Children are free of charge. This museum is a favourite of our four year old daughter also. We... More

Walking distance from the Finnish Parliament, you wont miss it especially when you saw a statue of a Moose ( Elk).

This is housed in a historic building that deserves more of it´s history told. However, it is a very interesting museum laid out over three floors, the fourth floor does tell some about the building. In the lobby is the first of many sights, an elephant. Skeletons of various animals are on show, moving up you will find lions, tigers,... More

We visited the museum again Luomus. It was already the third time. Public transport from the trams, and we will use every time I buy a day ticket. Museum of Natural History is located about 1km from the train station. Helsinki Christmas Street Fair and Christmas are wonderful. The child went carousel, which was free. People who are there to...
