Natural History Museum (Luonnontieteellinen Museo) Reviews
国会議事堂から程近いところにある自然史博物館です。正直ついでだからと軽い気持ちで見学したのですが、あまり普段みないカテゴリーの博物館のせいか思いのほか興味深かったです。剥製など、どうしてもこの国でもとうものではないあかもしれませんが、十分楽しめました。 more »It is a natural history museum, just a few blocks from the Capitol. It was interesting because of the museum of the category not seen very usually because it was honest and it visited with a light feeling. Such as taxidermist, it may not be shaken in this country, but I enjoyed it enough.
Struttura esterna molto carina e architettura interna pazzesca. All'interno, se appassionati, si potrebbero passare ore a imparare su argomenti che spaziano dall'origine della vita all'attuale dibatti... more »Very nice exterior structure and crazy interior architecture. Inside, if passionate, you could spend hours learning about topics ranging from the origin of life to the current environmental debate. The interactive part is developed quite well and not conceived exclusively for children. Admission Adults €15.
If stuffed animals isn't for you maybe you should continue without visiting but if can handle those, you and your family will enjoy the place. Dinosaurs, Finnish nature and animal but also more exotic animals and creatures are available. At least our kids have loved the place every time we have visited the place. Central location and easy access from railway station.
Surprisingly good! After being in NYC and London I didn't expect much from this small museum, but I was surprised to see the awesome collection of skeletons and animals. Unfortunately the signs with explanations were only in Finnish, no English translations, but we managed a bit with the Google translate camera feature. The settings are very well done and give a magical nature feeling that kids and adults will enjoy.
