Museum of Technology

Finland’s museum of technology, founded in 1969 and opened in 1975, occupies the premises built in the 1870s for the City of Helsinki Water Board, which are magnificently situated on the island called Kuninkaankartano at the mouth of the River Vantaa.

 

The displays trace the development of numerous industries, amongst them printing, chemical, sugar manufacturing, forest products and metallurgy. Many of the exhibitions are located in the circular water-purification hall. There are displays explaining how various parts of the waterworks operated, including the hydro-electric power station which formed part of the complex.
