Tamminiemi Villa is located in Meilahti adjacent to Seurasaari museum island on a beautiful park estate which used to be President Urho Kekkonen’s official residence during his period in office between 1956 and 1981. Tamminiemi is furnished the way it was in Kekkonen’s time in the 1970’s.

  • Tamminiemi has been connected to Finnish stately and administrative life for almost half a century and during the 19th century the estate was for a period occupied by the governor general. Since World War II, Tamminiemi has been used by Finland’s heads of state.
  • Tamminiemi was the official residence of President Ryti (1940-1944), President Mannerheim (1944-1946) and President Kekkonen (1956-1981) and a scene for many political negotiations and decisions.
  • Particularly during Kekkonen’s time, Tamminiemi became almost a concept in Finnish political life and language.
  • In spring 1987 the National Board of Antiquities was given the task to make Tamminiemi into the Urho Kekkonen Museum which also presents the history of independent Finland.
  • Booked guided tours are always designed together with the client to suit the needs of the visitor group. Available languages for the booked tours include Finnish, Swedish, English and German.

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