A nice museum to visit for Finns and people who are interested in pre-history. Last time I visited they did not have English descriptions of the pieces. The mammoth is a must-see!

This museum gives a good view of Finnish history all the way from stone age to machine guns. It also gives some glimpses on Mr Kekkonen and a lot of photos on hay storages.

Most of the tasks for children are in Finnish... The funniest was definitely stories of animal Master Chef competition. We loved it. Mamooth replica was a nice surprise, but I enjoyed more the tiny bits of information from the animal world.
