National Museum of Finland (Suomen Kansallismuseo)

The museum, housed in a National Romanticism-style building, opened in 1916. The mission of the National Museum of Finland is representing the history of the country, from Stone Age to the present day, with a collection of artefacts and materials of cultural history. The permanent exhibition comprises six parts. The Treasure Troves is a collection of coins, medals, orders, silver artefacts, jewellery and weapons. It is followed by Prehistory of Finland, the country's largest archaeological exhibition on public view. The Realm is dedicated to the development of Finnish society and culture from the Middle Ages (the beginning of which is dated to the 12th century in Finland) to the early 1900s: from the times of the Kingdom of Sweden to the era of the Russian Empire. A Land and its People tells of the Finnish folk culture in the 18th-19th centuries, the life of the pre-industrial countryside. The display dedicated to the 20th century - The Past Century - is an overview of the national and international culture of the independent state of Finland. Interestingly, the ceiling of the museum's entrance hall features the 1928 Kalevala-themed frescoes by Akseli Gallen-Kallela, similar to the ones exhibited by the artist at the Finnish Pavilion of the 1900 World Fair in Paris.
