Composer Jean Sibelius (1865-1957) was born and lived the first 20 years of his life in Hameenlinna. The rooms of his birthplace are decorated in the style of the era between the 1860s and the 1880s, and the museum exhibition sheds light on little Janne’s childhood years in Hameenlinna. A guided tour will provide you with more information. Chamber concerts are regularly held at the hall of the museum. Opening Hours 2.5.–31.8. Mon–Sun 10 a.m.–4 p.m. 1.9.–30.4. Tue–Sun 12 p.m.–4 p.m. (Closed: New Year’s Day, Good Friday, Labor Day, Midsummer Eve, Midsummer Day, Midsummer Sunday, Independence Day 6.12. and Christmas 23.–26.12.)
A lovely little museum in a great location. You don't need a lot of time to visit, but I chose to stay a little longer and soak in the calm atmosphere. Sibelius's wonderful music in the background is a great touch, and the staff is incredibly helpful.

Visited on Sunday noon. We were the only customers and had the three-story building for ourselves. Plenty of items and info for many visits. I’m glad they had this history oasis open even there are so few visitors.

The Prison is authentic and exciting place to visit. This is a museum, but it has been an old prison and there is many things left there and that makes it really authentic. It almost seems like the prisoners and the stuff just left. Offices and prison cells have been left intact. There is also clothing and other things to see in the museum. In a guided tour you here exciting stories about the prison history and stories about the prisoners.
