The Mannerheim Museum is the former home of a man with high influence on Finnish history. What impressed us was the design and atmosphere of the rooms more than displays. The very best was the timeless working room or library. As we walked through the rooms we were given a great introduction to Finnish history. Thanks a lot to our... More

Check opening times - certain hours, weekends only. Well worth a visit to see where and how Mannerheim, President and Marshal of Finland lived. Apparently no detail of the interior was too small for him. This remarkable man served in the Czar's army for 30 years until the revolution. He was decorated by both sides in both World Wars. You...

If you are interested in Finnish history, specially regarding the independence, I highly recommend visiting the Mannerheim museum in Kaivopuisto. Please check visiting times and call ahead to make sure you fit in to one of their tours. The guides are excellent and tours are offered in various languages.

My 11 year old daughter who usually gets bored on the very principle of visting a museum, was enthralled from the minute she stepped through the entrance. The most amazing tale of a man's lifetime is supported by personal items and props that get more and more bizarre as you move through the rooms. Reading up on Mannerheim's life, e.g.... More

It takes about 20-30 min walk reaching this museum from the Helsinki center, I believe a few minutes only by tram (we were walking there). This is a very quiet neigbourhood with embassy offices all around. The white, austere 2-storey house is overlooking the gulf. Museum staff are all great, welcoming, very enthusiastic about Baron Mannerheim. Our guide was a... More

I'm happy I visited Mannerheim Museum in Helsinki. The museum is actually his last house in Finland before retiring to Montreux for finals year of his incredible life. The building was owned by Fazer's family and Mannerheim was renting it from them. The guided tour is complete and the spokesman is good in his job, telling you a lot of... More

This museum is the villa the Father of Finnish independence lived in, in what is now the attractive embassy quarter by the sea. Mannerhein also saved Finland from the Soviets. The house is full of his souvenirs, and the guides, who speak many languages are truly knowledgeable. It is not just Finnish history but the Second World War.

Museum visit includes a tour around Mannerheim's home, describing his interests and large impact on Finnish history. Tour guide was very informative, and the tours are possible to get in a variety of languages. I recommend for those interested in Finnish history!
