This museum is really cool and well done, with lots of hands on stuff. I think kids would love this place, but it is great for adults too. Very nicely done. English info is available for almost all the exhibits. Lots of cool dinosaur and...More

I learned much and enjoyed this museum. I am fairly certain that some English translations exist. I noticed many children were also enjoying the museum while I was there.

We love history and natural history museums as a family so this was obviously on our itinerary. In fact, it was the first attraction we visited during our week-long stay in Helsinki. The quirky anthropomorphic giraffe statues having coffee on the balcony gives the impression...More

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.

I usually visit the natural history museum whenever I'm in a new place and this was one of the best I've been to. It is quite large, spanning 4 floors, and I could have easily spent more time here. The highlight of the museum for...More
