Visitor instructions

Detailed information on each museum and castle of the National Museum of Finland can be found on the webpage for individual museum.

We wish you welcome!

We aim to provide physically and mentally safe places at our museums for visitors and staff during both regular and unprecedented times. We ensure that visitors are able to keep enough distance to other visitors and to our staff members. The facilities are cleaned thoroughly and museum guests are offered the opportunity to sanitise their hands.

We recommend card payments. We do, however, accept cash in our museum shops and restaurants, and at the ticket counters. Entrance tickets to the National Museum, Häme Castle and Olavinlinna Castle as well at summertime to the Prison and Louhisaari Manor may also be purchased in advance at the online webshop for these museums.

As of April 14th, 2022, wearing a face mask is no longer required at our museums. Should you wish to wear a mask, please, bring a face mask with you, as we do not provide face masks to museum guests for free. However, individually wrapped surgical face masks may be purchased at the museums.

We warmly welcome all healthy visitors. However, if you are feeling ill, please do stay home.

More detailed information about individual museums and castles may be found on the webpages for each museum and castle.

Regarding Covid-19, the National Museum of Finland complies with the regional and local guidelines of the government, ministries, the Finnish Institute for Health and Welfare, Regional State Administrative Agencies and municipalities.
