While the museum is small, the entrance is free and the exhibition is educational and interesting. If you want to know more about Finnish nature, it is worth a visit. Especially because the location is so good!

Although this exhibition is not big, it's completely free and well created. I can recommend this place for both adaults and kids. Visit the view tower at the same time and please use stairs! 😉

Very nice small museum in the Harju water tower, dark and lovely atmosphere with all the main animals in Finland in a beautiful exhibition. After the museum you can have coffee or food upstairs or just have a look from the tower over the city.
