I visited Ateneum Art Museum in Helsinki today.
It is free for today and tomorrow!!
The main reason that I wanted to visit is “Japanomania”, this exhibition is until 15May, 2016.
Unfortunately, I was not allowed to take pictures of exhibition.
So many T-shits in the Patio!! Also you will see them outside the Museum.
Exhibitions are interesting, so is the architecture!!
Today, we visited Natural History Museum in Helsinki.
At the entrance, this huge elephant greeted us.
At the museum, there are many taxidermies. They were so real!
Dinosaurs exhibitions! So big about 4-5m high.
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!
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.
Old clock. Worth to see all the furnitures too.
I found some Japanese souvenir in this Museum.
And also something Russian…
We ended the tour here, at Old Church.
Today, we visited Teatterimuseo, Theater Museum @ Cable Factory in Ruoholahti.
Ruoholahti is located in the west part of Helsinki. You can get there by Metro within 10min from central railway station. Also tram number 8 will take you just in front of the Cable Factory.
On the second floor, you can find masks from all over the world, including Japanese traditional “Noh” masks.
And you will see many different kind of costumes inside, and you can also try it.
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!
