This was a real surprise gem on our trip.

We learnt an astonishing amount about the man and his contribution to Finland from our guide, who answered all manner... More

Very interesting museum. You get a glimpse of a real, historically accurate aristocrat house in Helsinki. They say the interior of the house is more or less the same as it was when Mannerheim was living there...

Our tour guide didn’t have the greatest English skills, but even that could not diminish the story of the man many consider to be the father of Finland. The collection of archives packed into this residence is impressive. I’d suggest knowing a bit about Gustaf Mannerheim before visiting. Without this, if the guide’s English is less than expected, the opportunity... More

The museum is a building where Mannerheim lived for decades. It is not of grand scale and you only walk around in groups with a guide who tells fascinating stories of the ´life of the great man. Tours are organised in several languages, better to call in advance.

I have lived in Finland my whole life and naturally I know who Mannerheim was, but I was not aware of how incredible adventurer he was. He boldly went wherever it was needed. He was also a widely respected multi-talented career person who left significant legacy in many areas and countries. The guide told a lot of interesting stories about... More

Mannerheim was the 2nd President of Finland, amongst many other things. I knew nothing about him prior to the visit. An incredibly resourceful and successful man. His home (which he rented) is very much worth a visit. He collected all sorts of things on his travels. The guide was very interesting & spoke good English (it was his first your!).... More

Gorgeous neighborhood about 10-15 minutes lovely walk from downtown into a nice neighborhood of embassies....what I COULDN'T find in these reviews is that it's not open often....Sounds like an amazing place but frequently tripadvisor and tripadvisor city guides DON'T post the hours which is critical...I THINK these are the hours. Friday 11:00 am – 4:00 pm Saturday 11:00 am –... More

The Mannerheim Museum is located on top of a hill in a prestigious residential area next to the Kaivopuisto park in Helsinki. The area has spectacular views of the sea and the islands off Helsinki. The building was the home of Mannerheim from 1924 to 1951. With the exception of a few rooms that have been converted for exhibition purposes,... More

We went to Helsinki to soak up the culture and a bit of history - and found the Mannerheim Museum fit the "history" part very well. The museum was a little hard to find - but using TripAdvisor's Phone App (which is awesome) we eventually found it. Staff were very welcoming and spoke very good English. Our tour guide was... More

Marshal Mannerheim. One of Finland's greatest men. Without his leadership and the incredibly fine and honorable Finnish army, the Russians had probably conquered Finland. When he came riding on his horse you saw a real soldier and gentleman.Museum is worth visiting to get a glimpse into his life and many travels.
