This fascinating museum by Kaivopuisto (park) was the home of Baron Gustav Mannerheim, former president, commander in chief of the Finnish army and Finnish Civil War victor. The great field marshal never owned the building; he rented it from chocolate magnate Karl Fazer until his death. The house tells of Mannerheim’s intrepid life with hundreds of military medals and photographs from his Asian expedition. Entry includes ainformative one-hour multilingual guided tour, plus plastic booties to keep the hallowed floor clean.
