Suomen Kansallismuseo (The National Museum of Finland.), Helsinki: 16 reviews and 28 photos
I have taken an interest in the museum ever since first visiting Helsinki - it was closed for refurbishment during that visit. Some year or so later, it was forced to open early as part of the Helsinki Festival, a rash move some thought. Sadly there was a great deal of criticism, but the staff have risen above thisand have developed the museum wonderfully since then. It is a good place to view Finland from prehistoric times right through the period of independence; showing educational changes and now into the world of high technology.
There are wonderful ceiling paintings by Akseli Gallen-Kallela; a vist is not complete without considering the paintings on the ceiling and their significance to the whole country.
The museum also has a good coffee shop.
