The museum is located in a mansion almost in the centre of the city and provides with an interactive insight into the history of natural world. Almost in every room there's some 'artifact' to touch which is great if you are with a 4year-old child. In short it was fun and I think we'll come there once more when our... More

This museum does not take more than an hour to visit unless you read each exhibit sign. There is some interesting altar pieces in the museum and other exhibits that were interesting.

This was the second time that we visited this museum with my daughter. Some of the sections were a bit boring for a ten-year-old, but most of them she was really interested in. A lot of details you can study with the kid. Especially the dinosaur chamber is beautifully setup.

If you have kids 3-7 years old and you happen to visit Helsinki with rain, this is a good option to spend time!

The natural museum is a great place if you are interested in the Finnish natural history. The eye catcher is the double headed veal.

The museum is not that big, but still it really uses its square meters efficiently. It covers prehistorical nature, Finnish nature, all types of geographical areas. The animals are beautifully setup, a lot of info or items to touch, pull, lift, etc. Very friendly staff, we could store our luggage in a separate room and they explained where we could... More

This is fairly nice natural history museum with lot of exhibits. Nothing overly fancy or remarkable, but decent. For small children there could more interactive stuff.

It has been my wife's favourite museum since childhood. Last year she bought an annual ticket for 50 euros and visited the museum for 20 times or so. Great value for money, now it is part of the Museokortti (museum card) concept. Children are free of charge. This museum is a favourite of our four year old daughter also. We... More
