You won't want to pass up a visit to the National Museum of Finland, even for the architecture alone! Set in a stunning building dating back to 1910, which itself represents one of Finland's most significant national-romantic works of architecture, the museum illustrates Finnish history from medieval times to the 19th century.

The museum's The Realm exhibit, focussing on 13th-19th centuries, details Finland's history under its different rulers through the ages: Catholic, Lutheran, Swedish, Russian and finally, Finnish Independence. Its other interactive exhibition, Vintti, is where you can get hands-on and experience history DIY style.

A new exhibit, Prehistory, is coming soon and will examine Finland's first settlers over 10,000 years ago with fascinating historic artifacts and displays. You can expect to learn about the Vendel era Levänluhta water burial site, look at ancient swords, animal motif items, silver treasures and many other relics, telling the story from the end of the Ice Age.
