This chair must be specially ordered for this museum!

After guided tour in the Museum, Minna Pyykkö lectured us in Finnish birds and animals.
She is working for Finnish broadcasting company, introducing Finnish nature.

There are many kinds of birds living in Helsinki area. I still don’t remember all the birds or animals names in Finnish, but little by little, I try to remember!

This museum is quite big and worth visiting!

Sinebrychoff Art Museum

Yesterday, we visited Sinebrychoff Art Museum, located on Bluevardi, opposite from Hietalahti Market Hall.

This building is constructed by a Russian businessman, Nikolai Sinebryukhov, who started  brewery, “Sinebrychoff”. His brother’s family lived in the house. Later, they donated their art collection to Finnish government.

ビール醸造所を設立したニコライ・シネブリュコフが建てたこの建物は、現在は美術館として利用されています。この建物には彼の弟家族が住んでいました。後に彼の甥、ポールが集めた美術コレクションをフィンランド政府に寄付しました。

We, future guides, talked about ourselves, attitudes, how to use microphone, our stories and favourite part of Helsinki etc… We also played in a group, which refreshed us.

Also we made up own stories in a group with today’s topics, and “play”ed with unique costumes at the theatre. What a experience!
