“The Finnish nature and animals in one museum”
Reviewed December 26, 2013

The Natural History museum is centrally located and recently renovated. Here you can see most of the Finnish animals in one place. Exhibition halls are in four floors in a very nice and historic building. We had a great visit!

“A panorama of the Finnish nature”
Reviewed December 1, 2013

I wonder how can just one building include so many different landscape-miniatures from the Finnish nature! For every nature-lover this is a must-see attraction in Helsinki!

“An excellent rainy day activity with kids”
Reviewed August 21, 2013 via mobile

This is nice compact natural history museum that has been recently renovated. It's right in the centre of Helsinki, and easy to recognise by the moose statue in the front. Many of the exhbits were labelled in English, but sadly not all.

“Enjoyable museum, great for animal lovers”
Reviewed August 4, 2013

This museum was pretty good, love the Moose statue out the front! For English speakers, you can get a tour guide cassette thing that talks about the displays, otherwise you mightn't learn as much as the signs are not in English. The cassettes come in a few different languages too. I particularly enjoyed the Finnish Animal section and the skeletons. 10,00 euro entry fee, but worth it if your into natural history. Closed on Mondays. The souvenir shop had some nice things.

“Good, basic natural history museum”
Reviewed July 31, 2013

Interesting use of an old boarding school, with good displays of a wide variety of skeletons and animals in dioramas. Some unusual items (sea cow skeleton, two-headed calf, terror bird skeleton) and a word hunt for children in four languages (finnish, swedish, english and russian). Seemed like a popular place for families.
