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.

Maybe I was there on an off-day and had the wrong guide but this wasn't as interesting as other reviews led me to believe. I am not too into Finnish history or knowledgeable about Finland in WW2 so maybe that was it. The house is pretty though and I was sad I didn't learn more about Mannerheim's Asian travels.

We went here about an hour before closing on a Friday. We were welcomed, almost as coming to someone's house, and were quickly paired up with an english speaking guide. It was just the two of us. The tour was very informative, and our guide was well-informed about the subject matter. Unlike what some folks have said, we could clearly... More

The visit of the house takes place as a 1-hour guided tour (10 euro) covering the houses interior and Mannerheims life. I believe they have guides for different languages / or the guides are multilingual. In my case it took just 3-4 minutes and then a young lady appeared and very friendly guide me through the house in fluent Swedish.... More

We saw this museum rated very high and went without knowing a lot about it in advance. Turned out that it was very good and Mannerheim was a lot more interesting than first expected. We went in the winter, off the tourist season, but the museum was still quite full. Could be worth to keep in mind if you are... More

I will not write much as being totally agree with previous comments - the place is really must-to-visit. You may firstly be confused that local personalities may be attractive but the Mannerheim's bio and his house are the first thing you need to know and visit here. Large collection of 'artefacts' through CGM life show the history of Eurasia in... More
