This museum is located next to Häme Castle. It has well-organized exhibitions from every war where Finland has been involved. The explanations are very detailed and with different languages. This museum can be quite exhausting for people who are not so keen on wars.

I loved going here, but i think it's a bit unfocused. It has so much information, its only interestinh for finnish history buffs. It would be nice to have a more general story line for foreigners.

A really cool museum! Extensive exhibition, interesting layout and an impressive outdoor section. You will see a lot of Soviet Union arms and an amazing collection of Wehrmacht decorations. A rare thing! You will not see a lot in Russia or the US.

Too much to see and read so you might be a bit overwhelmed especially when you are not a fan of militarism. My two teenagers did not liked it. In their opinion the Prison Museum nearby was much more interesting.

The bulk of the museum details Finnish military history in exhaustive detail. English is used, but I just did not need this level of detail. The exhibits themselves are standard military museum fare, but it was cool seeing the uniform of a 7 foot conscript....More

Ther was all necessary to see about artillery, signals and military engineering. This is to say from Finnish point of view. The combination of three army branches mixed in the same exhibition is same time a blessing and a curse. Diversion and interconnection versus focusing...More
