The Mannerheim Museum was undoubtedly the best thing I saw in my time in Helsinki. The house became a museum shortly after Mannerheim died, so it is very near to its original state. There is so much history on the tour, from photos of royals gifted to Mannerheim to military mementos and grand crosses to the treasures brought back from... More

I got onboard the number 2 tram and headed south. The number 2 became the number 3 and I took the first stop for the museum. A local gave me precise directions in perfect English and a 10 minute walk up hill got me to the museum. I paid the 10 euro entrance fee and asked for a guide in... More

National hero who led fight against invading Soviet army. When Germany invaded USSR he became an ally of Hitler and was granted an Iron Cross by Hitler, which is among his decorations... More

The museum is in the actual home of the legendary Marshall of Finland; it is packed with his original furniture, books and personal belongings, dozens of the gifts and medals he has received, his hunting trophies and exotic objects he has collected from his travels. You can only visit the museum with a guide, and there are several language options... More

I'm a history buff, and this museum was well worth a visit. It gives you great insight into the life of Gustav Mannerheim and the Finnish struggle against the Soviet Union. The museum even provided an English speaking guide even though it was just me. She really knew her history and was eager to share her knowledge. The museum is... More

Nothing but praise for this museum! The tour has been fantastic, exceptionally informative and well setup. Although you can't take pictures, they wouldn't do it any justice. Thank you Olga the tour guide , phenomenal job!

You need to go on the tour to find out how Mannerheim managed this. Fascinating account of his life (and by default modern Finnish history). Our English speaking guide was passionate and knowledgeable about the subject matter. Loved the idea that Mannerheim only ever slept in his own bed no matter where in the world he went (again, you need... More

It was very nice that the personal guide was included in the tickets price. My husband and I enjoyed the excursion.

We went to this having been told on the Panorama tour that the house was kept as Mannerheim had it. But it is so much more. For non-Finns who have not heard of Mannerheim it was fascinating to hear about this far-thinking man and his various roles. You can't just wander, you have to have a guided tour and they... More
