Outstanding!

You walk into Mannerheim's house, nothing less. An amazing experience that I would suggest you complement with a visit to the café Mannerheim had in Hanko, Finland's most southern town that is located at around 130 kms away from Helsinki.

Interesting home museum
Aug 2020
Mannerheim Museum is the home of Carl Gustaf Emil Mannerheim, Marshal of Finland. He is a very well known Finnish statesman and military officer who lived in this house 1924-1951.

The museum depicts Marshal Mannerheim's home as it was in the early 1940s, with the rooms furnished in an original way with the exception of three exhibition rooms.

The museum is only accessed with a guided one-hour tour. Tours are arranged as visitors arrive.

The easiest way to get to the museum is to climb the stairs up from the shore opposite the Statue of Peace.

Visited 3 times as a local, kept going back for the excellent tour guides and atmosphere!

An old mansion in a prestigious old part of Helsinki filled with a collection of paraphernalia from accross the globe (asian antiques & arts, hunting trophés, and yes, a tiger as a rug), this home of a military leader and 6th president of Finland is fascinating and atmospheric to walk through. The history behind his collections is expertly and engagingly narrated by the fantastic tour guides always showing you around the house when you go there, a truly devoted staff. Highly recommended!

If you visit Helsinki you got to see this museum, if you go by boat from Stockholm it`s only a short walk from the ferry,.

Wonderful museum
Aug 2019 • Couples
Situated about half a mile from the market hall following the coast it has few signs directing you to it but do persist as it is an excellent visit. Only open on Friday, Saturday and Sunday and shows both the lovely house as it was when Marshall Mannerheim lived there but also his life as a soldier and statesman. It is also a snapshot of Finnish life. We enjoyed the visit. Saga the English speaking guide was fantastic and knowledgeable.

What a wonderful museum/house. It contains so much history and culture. This Finnish man who had quite a life. He brought items from around the world, from all his journeys, to his home here in Helsinki. Most of them on display here. The guide was very informative, you could tell he new his history and liked talking about it, excellent!
What a remarkable man Mannerheim was, I understand why he means so much to history and to the Finnish people.

Really interesting to visit the home of the only Marshall of Finland. Lots of his personal items in display but his life was even more interesting. Worth stopping by

You really do not want visitors, do you?

This museum has very limited opening hours.
Visited Helsingfors last year, but did not stay for a weekend, so no chance to see this museum.
This year my visit included a weekend, so at last I would be able to pay this museum a visit. I think the history about Mannerheim is very interesting!
So I learned that the weekend I was to visit was the Midsummer weekend. Many places closed. Checked the webpage for this museum several times before my visit, and could not find any information about closing during Midsummer.
And I was happy! At last I would be able to see this house, and learn more about Gustaf Mannerheim.
And so disappointed when I arrived on Saturday 22.of June with a note on the door: Closed Midsummer weekend. This is just not possible!!
Your museum closed for almost 14 days! You do not really want visitors, do you?
And the information on your webpage, when did you update it regarding midsummer? Not a few weeks before midsummer when I did my research.
You have to do better, because Mannerheim deserves a much better run museum than this.
Visited Ekudden, the Kekkonen museum. Open Midsummer weekend, and five days a week. They surely know how to run a museum.

Finland's history related to Russia
Jun 2019 • Couples
This is an old building which describes Finland's history related to Russia. One needs to have a guide who speaks English. When we went it was closed and therefore please check the timings before the visit.

We walked there only to be told there were no English speaking guides and they wouldn't let us walk around with a guidebook on our own.
