My children want to go there every year, it's a small one compared to any towns, but it gives the children a good view of how things go, in a smaller scale. Recommend for family with children ab 3-> to show them how things develope

This museum is in the center of Helsinki. Easy to go. I was amused and exited by the fine settings of animals. Really well realized. There is also a cafe and a museum shop.

The museum was disappointing as unless you had an audio guide you couldn't tell what you were looking at. Nothing had English translation. Everything was in Finnish. The ticket office didn't suggest the audio guide so we had limited time and it was a disappointing...More
