Go on a journey through the history of Finland! The National Romantic building with Art Nouveau interior elements contains unique items that convey the evolution of Finland from prehistoric times to modern day.

Archaeological discoveries, earpick, snake buckle, gilded wooden throne of the Russian emperors and numerous other treasures can be found on the journey through time. Trends, superstitions, and great historical changes have been presented in a stimulating way in the exhibition, which even provides guests an opportunity to peek into a real smoke hut or have a seat in a Volkswagen Beetle from 1966.

Third floor of the museum houses Vintti, where children can learn through interactive points what living was like in the times when one had to use both hands and one’s head to get by. In addition to temporary exhibitions, the National Museum has a cosy café and a museum shop.
