Good as it's free
Apr 2021
It was not that big, but good considering it was free. It was not very light inside so was hard to see many of the specimens. All the information is in Finnish but there are information sheets in swedish and english.

Very interesting museum
Mar 2020
This museum showcases the diversity of nature in Central Finland. It has an impressive collection of over 250 000 samples of flora and fauna typical for Central Finland.

The museum is situated in Vesilinna Watching Tower. On the same visit, you can have a bird's eye view over the beautiful scenery.

Small Museum of Nature, Finnish animals
Jul 2019 • Couples
The small nature museum on the ground floor of Vesilinna is free and relatively well organized. Finnish animals and rocks. At least for the little ones a nice tour.

Living exhibition of nature for children and adults.
Sep 2018 • Family
Over the past few years we have visited the museum many times with our grandchildren. Every time there has been lots to see. My favourites are geological exhibition, nature photographs and short nature films. Children like the real nature animals and the films too. And every time we climb up to the Tower to see the town, the lakes, the hills and the forests outside.

Small but free and educational
Aug 2017 • Solo
While the museum is small, the entrance is free and the exhibition is educational and interesting. If you want to know more about Finnish nature, it is worth a visit. Especially because the location is so good!

Best view to town
Jun 2017 • Family
The museum is located in Jyvaskyla's old water tower. The museum itself is ok but the best part of lacation is the tower. One can partly use fhe lift to middke part where is a terrace and quality restaurant and view to city and surrounding lakes and forests. The best view is to climb top of the tower. And this all doen't cost anything.

Although this exhibition is not big, it's completely free and well created. I can recommend this place for both adaults and kids. Visit the view tower at the same time and please use stairs! 😉
