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.

    A fantastic little museum.

    The staff were great. Especially the young guy who explained to me and my son in English and Finnish what was there to see, how to interact with things and even took pics for us.

    My boy loved the interaction part and so did I. The ski jumping figures were my boys favourite. Mine was the shooting! I got 127m on the ski jumping simulator once too. Thats harder than it looks.

    The exhibitions are well kept, informed and very nice. Bit small but was free for my boy so I was happy with that.

    Go enjoy!

    Radio and TV Museum Mastola (Radio- ja tv-museo Mastola) is quite interesting. It is situated on Radiomäki Hill. You learn much about broadcasting and military history there. Interesting items include a radio station at the front (1941-1944), Mobile phone Mobira Cityman 900 (Nokia CD60N Gorba, 1987), Mobile phone Salora SRP 25 S/CAA (1976-1981) etc.

    I tell one of those interesting stories which I learnt in the museum: During the Continuation War in August 1941 strange explosions without any visible reason were heard in the occupied areas of Karelia. Finnish troops were sent to investigate the matter. Lieutenant Lauri Sutela found 600 kilograms of explosives under a bridge. Mines were sent to army headquarters in Mikkeli. There they discovered that the detonator was of previously unknown type. Those detonator boxes were sent to Helsinki for further investigation. It was noticed that those mines were radio controlled mines. It was also noticed that it was possible to disturb detonators by playing Finnish folk tune "Säkkijärven polkka". Furthermore they noticed that mines had been located throughout the Vyborg region. So Finns started to broadcast the upbeat folk song without any pauses in the Vyborg region in September 1941. People thought that the technician of the radio station had lost his mind. However, broadcasting this song on a certain frequency disturbed detonators. "Säkkijärven polkka" was aired until the spring 1942 when the radio mines were thought to have run out of battery power.

    The outdoor area of the museum is very interesting, too. You see 150 meter high radio masts (built in 1927) there. You see also an old water tank area (built in 1909) which serves as a satellite antenna station now. You see also huge parabolic reflectors and you may even test them. Step in front of a mirror and speak gently or whisper toward the center of the parabolic mirror (facing the mirror). So your friend standing next to another mirror can hear you clearly.

    You see also Johannes Ivakko's animal sculptures in the garden of the museum. Johannes Ivakko was a self-taught artist who was born in Karelia in 1914. He settled in Lahti after being evacuated due to the war. Nowadays his concrete sculptures are beautifully mossy.

    It is free to visit this outdoor museum but you have to buy a ticket (or use Finnish Museum Card) if you want to visit the indoor museum. The free outdoor museum has the same opening hours as the indoor museum.

    In summary I can say that there is something for everybody in Radio and TV Museum Mastola.

    Lahti Museum of Visual Arts Malva (Lahden visuaalisten taiteiden museo Malva) is a modern multi-storey museum. It was opened in 2022 in Malski Building, which is an old brewery building.

    I could say that this museum is a true modern art museum. They have modern art but the exhibition itself is very modern, too. They even have interactive artworks. In one room you may borrow a tablet and look at the drawings with the screen. In that way virtual scenes unfold in front of you. However, they have changing exhibitions. So activities may vary from time to time.

    Although this is a modern art museum, I actually loved the highest floor most. There they have older art and Finnish design but also interesting historical facts about art, design, sports, war and Finnish companies. You can read texts both in Finnish and in English. So this is a very versatile museum which I can recommend for everybody.

    Travel time from Helsinki to Lahti is only 50-60 minutes by train. So this is a nice one day trip from Helsinki, too.

    Lahti has grown in the last hundred years from a small township to a remarkable summer and winter attraction. The Lahti Historical Museum shows why and when the growth has happened.
