This October, the Finnish Environment Institute relaunched the Luonnontila.fi website. The website summarises biodiversity monitoring data for Finland in the form of easy to understand indicators. The Finnish Museum of Natural History (Luomus) has played a key role in the development of the new service.
The "Art For Bones" exhibition brings the Natural History Museum to life as darkness falls, in the midst of the darkest time of the year, 15.–25.11. The audiovisual works address the diversity of nature, species extinctions, and reflect these against visions of the future. The works offer a unique combination of art and natural history, echoes from the past, and vanishing worlds.
When the collections of the zoology unit of the Finnish Museum of Natural History moved into their current building on Pohjoinen Rautatiekatu in 1923, it marked the birth of the Natural History Museum. The centenary of the museum is celebrated in many ways this year, including with the recently opened Festival in the Forest exhibition. The exhibition will be open to the public from 3 June 2023 to 29 December 2024.
