Suomnelinna Toy Museum

Museum in Helsinki

As delightful for adults as it is for children, this little gem tucked away on the quieter eastern side of the Suomenlinna sea fortress is an absorbing treasure trove of teddy bears, dolls, models and games. The handsome wooden villa housing the museum is also the home of its owner Petra Tandefelt, whose love of tea is expressed in the adjacent Café Samovarbar, a cosy retreat in winter and featuring a charming outdoor terrace in summer.
