Checkout Langinkoski Watch Video


The imperial fishing hut and summer residence built for emperor Alexander III of Russia in the late 1880s.

  • For an imperial building, the fishing hut is modest, but its style does have a simplified grace. Several buildings from the same period are located in the museum area, surrounded by a nature reserve. The hut has been used as a museum since the 1930s.
  • The fishing hut was designed by Finnish architects. Director General of the Board of Public Buildings Sebastian Gripenberg and architect Magnus Schjerfbeck created the construction drawings, while the interior was designed by Jac Ahrenberg.
  • The festive opening of the fishing hut was organised on 15 July 1889. The prestigious guests included the Queen of Greece and the Duchess of Edinburgh.
  • Langinkoski is a fascinating place to visit, combining a refreshing trip to nature with the traces of the common history of Finland and Russia.
  • A guided tour is included in the ticket price. The tours are intended for individual museum visitors. We kindly ask groups to pre-book their tours.

The National Museum of Finland consist of eight museums and two castles
