What people are saying:

Helsinki Observatory is the center of the Astronomical Museum and the visitor center of the Helsinki University Museum. It is the Helsinki Observatory where you can learn about space, astronomy and the history of astronomy. On a small hill, I visit the planetarium on a free day, and there is a large astronomical telescope on the top floor.

    A brief delight

    It's not a very big museum, but excellent if you like astronomical equipment (or want to teach a kid about space). This was possibly the first time I've found electronic displays in a museum interesti...
