I have mixed feelings about this museum. In general, it's a good and solid museum dedicated to a great man. The museum quite simple but is does give a good understanding of the life style and life path of Gustaf Mannerheim. The exhibition, which was...More

Very intersting place to tour even if the staff rushes you through it. I found it very revealing of the context in which modern Finalnd emerged from its colonial and imperial past and how its early statemen figured out how to play off the great...More

We were already fascinated by Mannerheim's history however we didn't expect the museum to be SO interesting. The English speaking guide was engaging and informative. We thoroughly enjoyed the tour and the insight into his professional and private life in his very own home. Highly...More

I didn't know much about Mr. Mannerheim (pronounced Mannerhaim) but my wife did. This house was really nice and the tour was really interesting. You can only take private tours but it is included with the admission price. The house is located in a beautiful...More

This is the home of an historically important person. The museum only allows guests that accompany a guide. The guides take many tours per hour so don’t hesitate to go here. Just be prepared to wait a little bit. There is one rather undfriendly, not...More

Before traveling to Finland, I read a biography of Mannerheim, so was fascinated to see where he lived and to hear more about him. The English tour guide was excellent, and stayed after the tour to answer a lot of our questions

The groups are fairly small, and they are flexible - they adjust the languages to fit the people turning up.

As Mikko said, about 10 mins from the terminal. I clearly walk slower than he does :) It is uphill. Take your map, there is no significant signposting!

On Thursday, August 24 we want to see the National Museum of Finland, Seurasaari, and either the Design Museum, Amos Anderson Art Museum, or Mannerheim Museum. The National Museum and Seurasaari do not open until 11, so we are going to get a late start. I would appreciate any advice on what order makes the most sense, and how to get from one place to another. It looks like we will be really going from one end to the other. Our choice of the last museum will probably depend a lot on which is...More

Thanks JohntheFinn. I always find that trip planner site very difficult to get around on, but I think I have it figured out now. It looks like it would be easiest to walk from next to the Uspenski Cathedral to the bus stop on Mannerheimintie, but if the others want to save some steps, we would take tram 4 to that point? Now I just have to figure out how to get to the National Museum from there. Its a good thing I still have a few days before we leave. I think I need to print out maps for...More
