The National Museum of Finland

The National Museum of Finland is part of the Finnish Heritage Agency’s organisation. It is a museum of Finnish cultural history, serving as the central museum of its kind in the country, and its purpose is to study, collect, and display items and artefacts that represent cultural heritage.
