The museum is full of history, and one can really sense it. Getting there by bus is easy from the city center. Prices aren't too high. The staff was brilliant and answered any possible questions. Cafe Adjutant is also worth visiting !

President Urho Kekkonen was the longest serving president of Finland (1956-1982) during an era filled with political challenges both from west and east. His residence tell an interesting story about him and his family life. Here you will also find the world’s most famous sauna.

Kekkonen has been "the boss" and could see him walking around the house and the garden. Good that the home has made as a museum. Easy to walk around without a guide. At the same time it was nice to see Miss Universum Anne Pohtamo's...More

We visited the museum and cafe in a sunny day. The location is very beautiful and the English tour was interesting, even for a Finn.
