Suomenlinna is a must-see place if you are travelling in Helsinki. It would take you a ten-minute ride from Helsinki. The island is well-tracked and you would never be lost. Even if you go after the closing hours of the museum, there are still a...More

We found this museum to be small but worth seeing. It gives some good historical background on the fort and Helsinki, and contains some interesting artifacts. Definitely worth a stop during a visit to the island.

Suomenlinna is a perfect place to spend a sunny day outside. You just buy a ticket to the ferry and go there. It's a nice place to walk, have snacks, make photos and relax! Also there are some interesting museums worth visiting.

Great for picnics and getting to feel the Finnish archipelago. Do not miss the huge Sweden ferries to pass very close through a narrow strait.

The museum has a lot of artefacts and displays outlining the history. The cafe and shop adjoining the museum are a good stop to rest one’s feet.

Good film. Well explained history of the fortress and main characters. Enjoyed the photo exhibition upstairs and profiles of island residents.

This place had really interesting stories to tell. I had no idea how important Suomenlinna was for the development of Helsinki. The museum includes a lot of information about the history of Suomenlinna, also some props and a 25 min presentation about Suomenlinna. You get...More
