The National Museum of Finland is in the process of updating its permanent exhibition, with the final part, Otherland, set to open at the start of 2021. The Otherland exhibition, which will replace the current The Realm exhibition, is being planned and scripted in collaboration with a multidisciplinary working group and a team of experts. For visitors, the update will first become visible in autumn 2019 with the closing and dismantling of a part of The Realm exhibition. However, museum-goers will still be able to visit the popular chimneyless cabin, the drawing room of Jakkarila Manor and the throne room, which will remain open until further notice. Additionally, the permanent exhibitions The Story of Finland and Prehistory are also open to visitors.
