Most interesting place. I always admired this man - a Lieutenant-General of the Russian Empire Army till 1917, Finnish Commander-in-Chief, Marshal and President.Extraordinary man. Also recomend to visit Mannerheim's memorial tumb in Hietaniemi Cemetery.

Well worth the 8 euros. I can see why this museum was so highly rated here. Joined a guided tour which had already started but the brilliant thing was that not only did I not miss a thing, but my late arrival did not come at a cost for the 2 people who were already there - the welcome, introduction...

Former home of the Father of the Finnish Nation. Fantastic small museum with superb guided tour. The place is filled with his hunting trophies and war medals. The guy was a real man's man, but apparently also designed the wallpaper!

Mannerheim's house is only open a few days each week and has shorter hours than most other places. Be sure to check! We got there less than an hour before closing and had a private tour, which was barely enough. Our guide spoke excellent English. Many interesting facts about his life, principally his wartime service to both Russia and later... More

We spent about 90 minutes with the most interesting guide taking us around the museum. Mannerheim was a fascinating character who was instrumental in making Finland the great country it is today

Found this a very interesting place to visit. It has lovely scenery around it. The staff were informative and the guide answered many questions about this important Finnish man. It offered more social and personal history. Hardly anyone that we asked knew where it was, yet a local woman on the tour said Mannerheim was a very highly respected man... More

I visited on the basis of the reviews and found it to be as fascinating as others have found it. I was a bit concerned about the lack of published tour times but you can turn up at any time and they simply wait a few minutes and then set off. Our amiable guide who spoke impeccable English was very... More

It is a fascinating museum and the life of this man is even more fascinating. The only tip I'd give is not to go last minute (after 15.00) as being in the last group we really felt rushed out.

The museum gives a pretty good and honest picture of this superbly important personality in Finnish history. Showing both his strengths and weaknesses.

He was later accepted at another military academy and ultimately graduated. He rose in the ranks of the Imperial Russian army. At one point, he was a... More
