National Museum of Finland
Visitors who enjoy getting to know the country they are
exploring will enjoy the National Museum of Finland in Helsinki,
which depicts Finnish life from prehistoric times to the present.
Housed in an impressive Romantic style building, the museum's
permanent exhibition is divided into five sections, including the
'Treasure Trove', a display of coins, medals and weaponry. The
archaeological section features some rare Stone Age finds. Also
interesting are the folk costumes, textiles and furniture displays
that make up Finland's cultural heritage collection. The museum
also has a café and shop.
