Boring useless place, no english translations at all, enormous prices and a stupid couple of huge ugly peluche giraffe on the top of the building. Another tourist trap such as the most of Helsinkii. Avoid this place, avoid this city

The natural historical museum in Helsinki offers great opportunities to explore the Finnish nature. The displays are well presented and you can spend hours without noticing it. The museum is fully accessible for people using electric wheelchair.

This is a nice, somewhat static display of animals in nature. The diorama's are beautifully made with little details for the Observer. As an english speaker your only source of information is an audio Tour. All other info is in Finnish or Swedish.

The scenes with stuffed animals are interesting and unique with lots of little details (like hunting scenes or relevant excrements). Good for the kids or adults.

This museum is a place where you can enjoy with the whole family. You can find out about the Nordic fauna and know about the prehistoric animals that inhabitated Finland.

The museum is located in a mansion almost in the centre of the city and provides with an interactive insight into the history of natural world. Almost in every room there's some 'artifact' to touch which is great if you are with a 4year-old child....More
