Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Good Museum about finnish history in Jyväskylla and Alvar and Eino Alto, both in the same house. The exhibition is quite new and also interesting for kids.

It was a good museum, very modern. There was information in Finnish and English but also they give you a book with information in other languages. Most of the artefacts were general history things rather than anything special to central Finland.

Quite versatile and interesting exhibitions. The museum is rather small but still enough to see. Also some fun for kids.

The newly renovated Museum of Central Finland is located next to the Alvar Aalto Museum. This building is also designed by Alvar Aalto. It was completed in 1961.

This museum focuses on the cultural history of the region. Here you can see the development of Central Finland from prehistoric times to the 1990s. Besides the permanent exhibitions, the museum arranges temporary art exhibitions. It has so much to offer.

Unfortunately the Museum of Central Finland was closed for a major renovation until early 2020 but it has been recommended by locals. We still went to look.
This is a beautiful building designed by architect Alvar Aalto, and right next door to the museum about his work (also designed by him) which is well with a visit. They make a beautiful pair of buildings to look at. You can then walk back through the university campus that he designed.

A cute little display of Central Finnish customs, living, clothing, a bit of art, and also a small shop.
I would just like an audioguide or something, to make the tour a bit more interesting.

I was interested to find out about the history of Finland and how people lived from the 19th century. They change the exhibition often.

The museum was absolutely fascinating! There's a ton of information about the history of Jyväskylä, the central Finland region, and Finland as a whole. I loved the reconstructions (of a shop, an apartment, etc.); they really made the history come alive. It might not be a huge building, but there's so much interesting stuff packed in here that it's worth a trip. Most signage is translated into English, so even if you don't speak Finnish you'll still get a lot out of it. I didn't go on a Friday (museums are free on Fridays) and I thought it was well worth the admission fee. If you're in the city you should check it out!

If you are interested in Jyväskylä´s history this is a nice place to visit. I loved the old shop reconstruation, with old food and tobacco packets on the second floor. They also have changing exhibitions on two other floors ( 1st and 4 th). You can take photos without flashlight, but you have to ask permission from the staff if you want to bublish your photos in social media.
