Palanderin Talo

Top choice museum in Hämeenlinna

Finland loves its house-museums and this is among the best, offering a wonderful insight into well-off 19th-century Finnish life, thanks to excellent English-speaking guided tours. There’s splendid imperial and art-nouveau furniture as well as delicate little touches including a double-sided mirror to spy on street fashion, and a set of authentic children’s drawings from the period.
