Botanic gardens

Could you float on the leaves of a giant water lily? Where can you experience different continents all in one day? Enjoy the fascinating and diverse plantlife at the botanic gardens in Kaisaniemi and Kumpula. The greenhouses at the Kaisaniemi botanic garden invite you for a daytrip into the tropic, all year round. Kumpula Botanic Garden will be open from Tuesday to Sunday from 11am to 6pm (May-September).

Natural History Museum offers science and experiences

When was the last time you stopped at the feet of a dinosaur or listened to the sounds of wild animals under the starry skies of Africa?

The five exhibitions at the Natural History Museum present the diversity of nature around the world. The History of Life tells about the development of living organisms in the light of fresh scientific results. The Story of the Bones exhibition studies the diversity of vertebrates from many different points of view – how and why they are developed, and what guides their evolution.
