A day at the museum

My girls are enjoying a two day autumn break from school.

Today we decided to visit the Natural History Museum.

All exhibitions have recently been rebuilt.
This was the first time we've seen all the
finished exhibitions.

There are four permanent exhibitions:
- Finnish nature
- History of life
- Story of the bones
- Nature of all continents

The neo-baroque building housing the museum
was built in 1913 as a Russian school for boys.
The staircase is beautiful!
