Mannerheim Museum, Helsinki

4.5
#8 of 51 in Museums in Helsinki
Learn about the life of a military hero and statesman at Mannerheim Museum, once the home of its namesake. Poised on a hill above an upscale residential neighborhood, the museum displays the artifacts of Carl Gustaf Emil Mannerheim, whose precarious childhood led to an interesting life in the military fighting for Russia and later against Russia. His education by experience is reflected in the many objects brought back from distant places as well as the broad range of subject matter represented in his library. The house is in its original state, with furniture and decor from Mannerheim's own collection, while the exhibits display medals and honors he earned. You can also view his extensive book collection and family portraits. Notice Mannerheim's uncomfortable-looking bed, where he kept strict sleeping rituals.

  • If you are in Helsinki you should take a day trip here. First, the surroundings are fantastically beautiful, and then this hunting lodge is to be visited. It gives a good insight into the time of Mannerheim. Everything is well signposted and labelled and the gentleman at the checkout has a lot to tell. The sauna is nice to look at and you can then look around the trenches and eat very well next door. So an absolute recommendation!
