Finnish Museum of Natural History

Giraffes in the Gymnasium

The building that is now serving as the Natural History Museum has stood on this place since 1913. But what was its original purpose? What kind of stories have its thick walls witnessed? How have its surroundings changed?

You’ll find the popular Giraffes in the Gymnasium exhibition as you walk from exhibition to exhibition. It is an exhibition within the exhibitions – pictures and stories of the history of the museum are presented around the building.
