Schools

The museum is an excellent destination for study outings and provides a good addition to the history curriculum of schools. Its authentic setting demonstrates important events in the history of Finland in a concrete and living way. The museum also serves younger pupils. There is the interesting exhibition hall indoors and the conference room for the whole group (up to 50 visitors).

 

Our outdoor exhibits (the War Path, communication and firing trenches etc.) give younger visitors an opportunity for physical activity and moving about freely after the bus ride to the museum.

Our canteen staff has good suggestions for groups wishing to order snacks and refreshments.

Please remember that we are in a unique cultural-historical setting and teachers are requested to instruct their pupils to move carefully in the area and to keep to the paths whenever possible.

To book a visit for a school group, pleas e-mail us at museum@frontmuseum.fi.
