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.

Lotta Svärd Museum is owned by Lotta Svärd Foundation. It is located in Tuusula around 30 km from Helsinki Center. Easiest to go by own car. It is composed of the museum, museum shop and a cafe. Really worthwhile to visit. The museum is small but a lot of opportunity to use all your senses. Nice surroundings.
In the Tuusulajärvi area and along the old road there are several interesting destinations to visit like Ainola (Sibelius), Ahola (Juhani Aho, Venny Soldan-Brofelt), Halosenniemi (Halonen), Erkkola etc.

Lotta Museum is located beside lake Tuusula. at autumn there is a festival taking place on Järvitie of Tuusula, when Lotta Museum is organizing buffet to everyone. As well there is many other happening on same road same time. Other good timing is come at Finnish Mid Summer Festival.
On these times or ote times when Lotta Museum is open, you will have splendid service and enjoy their cafeteria.
If you like cycling, there is excellent 20 kilometers circle to cycle around lake of Tuusula and plan to have an one stop at Lotta museum. There are more places to have other stops.
If you arrive at winter time you can take skies instead of bicycle and enjoy skiing on ice around of lake.

We were taken here by our Finnish friend as part of the cultural home of the Finnish people and it is a traditional café serving good coffee and traditional pastries and more substantial lunch items. There are photos on the walls showing how the cooperative worked when it was a going concern. It is aimed at the Finns so don't expect anything in English although the staff speak English and are very helpful.

To really appreciate this place one needs to know a bit of Finland's efforts in the second World War. Without the support of these women, (Lottas) it would not have been possible to fight the Soviets to a standstill -- and keep Finland independent. The Lottas were not soldiers but a lot of them worked right behind the front lines, cooking and nursing the wounded, among other vital tasks. The Museum is best observed by joining a guided tour - and enjoying coffee with delicious home-made pastries afterwards.Hats off to those brave gals!!

If one is interested in Finnish history this smallish museum. There you find information on history of Finnish women during war time.
Exhibition is nicely put and informative.
There is down stairs a cafe&restaurant where you eat deliciuos soups or have coffee with sweet bread.
There are other home museums of Finnish artists near by worth visiting, too.

A beautiful and interesting place to visit in Summer. Wide garden area with benches to sit and admire the nature. Excellent place to have a cup of coffee or tea with sweets or ice-cream. At lunch time delicious soups or other small to eat. If interested of Finnish war history, there is a war museum inside with a small fee. Been wisiting Lotta Museum every summer since 2013.
