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.

    Took the train from Helsinki while visiting on a cruise. The atmosphere, music-to-visit-by, informative English story boards gave us a snapshot of Sibelius’ early life. So glad we took the trip to visit, the lady attendant was charming and informative

    My initial plan in Hämeenlinna was just to visit the Häme Castle but at the ticket office I realized I had an hour to spend before the next scheduled castle tour, so I decided to get the combined ticket (19 euros) to check out the Military museum next door as well. I thought some 30–45 minutes would suffice in the museum, but it turned out I had to come back later to see the rest of the exhibition after the castle tour.

    The museum boasted a generous collection of modern and historic military weapons, equipment, vehicles, and other paraphernalia (medals in particular,) spread out on three floors of the main building, and also in an outdoor exhibition area. The items were presented with plentiful information in form of multimedia displays, photos, and texts.

    The area can be explored unguided, and it offers things to examine for several hours for those wanting a deep-dive into military history of Finland. There is also a cafeteria and a souvenir shop, as usual.

    This wooden house was an upper-class residence from late 19th century. It presents the lifestyle of a bourgeois Hämeenlinna family 100 years ago.

    There are many rooms for different purposes, ranging from the elegant drawing room to the servants’ kitchen.

    The museum can be visited only with a guided tour. They start every 30 minutes.

    We were the only ones on our tour and got an interesting 50-minute trip to the past.

    Hämeenlinna Art Museum has always well established exhibitions with reasonable amount of works for about 1 hour visit. Certainly a must visit in Hämeenlinna.

    Skogster Museum is a real gem in the heart of Hämeenlinna, I am surprised, that as a long standing resident of the town, that I have not visited earlier.

    My wife and I went on a Saturday afternoon, and it was not especially busy.

    The ground floor showed some history and exhibits from the town, together with an excellent wide screen film, lasting around 20 minutes, documenting the whole history of Hämeenlinna, normally I don’t have the patience to watch such films, but this was so well done, and interesting, I was disappointed when it ended, in addition, you can select the language you want to listen in.

    The upstairs exhibition was “swinging 60’s”, I understand that this changes annually, apart from a few permanent exhibits, once again this was so well laid out and presented, that it took time to take it all in, it was also helpful that there were staff availably, who could explain certain items, and were fluent in English.

    Certainly, Skogster Museum is somewhere that I will certainly return to.

    Sibelius Center is a nice combination which collects all the information of Sibelius under one roof. There is also lots of Finnish design in the same room, while it is located within Wetterhoff handicrafts building. And if you are planning to buy any Finnish design or Sibelius souveniers, this is THE Place for you.
