The Helsinki City Museum main building on Sofiankatu is located in the immediate vicinity of the capital’s iconic Senate Square and bustling Kauppatori market, with exhibitions focusing on the history of the city.

Helsinki City Museum, Sofiankatu 4

In addition to the exhibitions, visitors can watch old Helsinki-themed films in the movie theatre, shop in the museum shop or dig through old photographs in the photograph archives.

Originally intended as part of the Stockmann department store, the building designed by the legendary Finnish architect Lars Sonck was completed in 1913. The building later housed Helsinki’s main police station for more than 50 years. The City Museum moved into the premises in 1994. Museum operations at Sofiankatu 4 will finish at the end of 2015 and continue in the new Helsinki City Museum which will open near the Senate Square in spring 2016.
