The National Museum of Finland is an oasis of culture and history in the middle of Helsinki.

  • The museum was built from 1905 to 1910 and opened to the public in 1916. After the last thorough renovation, the Museum was re-opened in July 2000. The architecture belongs to national romanticism and the interior mainly to art nouveau.
  • The permanent exhibitions of the National Museum are divided into parts. There are collections of coins, medals, orders and decorations, silver, jewellery and weapons.
  • There is prehistory of Finland, the development of Finnish society and culture from the Middle Ages 12th century to the early 20th century through the Swedish Kingdom Period to the Russian Empire Era, and Finnish folk culture in the 18th and 19th centuries with life in the countryside before the industrialisation among other exhibitions.
  • The collections also included the Mesa Verde artifacts from the cliff dwellings of Colorado.
  • The museum’s entrance hall ceiling has ceiling frescoes in the national epic Kalevala theme, painted by Akseli Gallén-Kallela, which can be seen without an entrance fee.
