If, like me, you're interested in history, in this case particularly military history of 20th century, you'll like this. Fascinating building and Mannerheim's own bedroom was exceptionally sparse. Apparently he chose to have it so. Also found out he was one of the bodyguards at Czar Nicholas II's (of WW1 fame) coronation. Great background info about Finland as well, as... More

We got over an hour guided tour for just 10 euros per person. The home of Mannerheim has been kept genuine and it was a very exceptionate house in the early 1920's. The guide was really into his job, probably a history student. We strongly recommend this museum both for Finns and tourists!

I liked to take a tour with a guide that gave very good information about Mr Mannerheim, president of the republic of Finland during the WWII. Original furniture is still there to see.

Mannerheim was a fascinating man; one who made his mark many times in his life. His home in Helsinki has been lovingly maintained from the time of his death. You feel his spirit in every room. So much of Finland's recent history is entwined with this man.

This was a real surprise gem on our trip. I knew a little bit about Marshal Mannerheim from his ww2 exploits but his house was full of not only very interesting things but also staffed by excellent and knowledgeable guides! 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
