Expensive but good museum
Aug 2019
Good museum in a central location, only short walk away from the train station and bus terminal. The entry fee is a bit steep but you are allowed to come and go from the museum with the same ticket during the day, and the lockers for your belongings are free. There is also a lunch cafe on site, which seemed to be fairly decent and not too expensive.

The museum itself spans several floors and is very nicely laid out, allowing you to view everything in orderly fashion. Information is available in three languages, but on some occasions English is missing. Overall it’s a good museum worth the visit if you are interested in the subject, and if you happen to have children I’m sure they’ll enjoy it as well.

Lots of bones and stuffed animals!

Really enjoyed our few hours in the national history museum. It was lovely and warm and there were free lockers to store our coats, hats and scarves etc.
The exhibits were super interesting! Unfortunately we only speak English and so it was difficult to know what lots of the exhibits were as the labels/signs were not translated however if you are happy to just roam and look then this is fine. All of the staff spoke good English and were happy to help although not too many staff around!
Would definitely recommend this as a thing to do in Helsinki if you are interested in natural history!

Do not miss this museum. Excellent displays. We went with two kids (8 and 5). It was perfect.
The information about various ecosystems was super informative.

Go there!
Sep 2019
Natural History Museum in Stockholm is one of my favorites and I have been visiting there twice.

Finnish version is not nearly as big but it is definitely worth seeing.

Main reason is that here you can have a special peek to Finnish nature which is not possible elsewhere.
There is also a good collection of displays from around the world and most of them are really interesting.
It took me two hours to go around and I wish I had at least half hour more time. Will go there again with children.

Chock Full of Displays
Jul 2019
This natural history museum is not all that large but is well worth a visit. The interior architecture itself is quite beautiful. There are stacks upon stacks of animals all crammed into a small space but the displays do not suffer for it. Especially good for kids, it's worth a viewing.

too much too little space
Aug 2019 • Family
under 7 free entry is definitely a plus. adult at reasonable price. the museo is packed with lots of stuff. the dinosaur exhibition drummed up a lot of expectation that met expectation just barely. i think wider broader space will do more justice to this museo. too much content too little squeezy i would say. the details of the animals are cramped in small area

Worth a visit
Aug 2019
This museum is nicely laid out for the exhibits and access. It covers not only Finland but much of the world. There is a lot of emphasis on climate change even though based on settled science, we should be dead by now.

Almost like stepping get back in time to an age before all the technical advances took the charm away. This was a first museum visit for my 4 year old grandson and he was very taken with exhibits.

This amazing museum offers you unforgetable experience of history, plants and animals. It is located only a few minutes' walk to from the Central Railway Station and bus stops. It is highly recommended!

Learning about animals and nature
Apr 2019 • Solo
Centrally located in Helsinki. The elk statue in front of the building. The old school. It is wise to go there once a while and learn new things about nature and animals. This time about the skeleton of animals and disappeared animals like mammuths. A cafe and museum shop.
