This little museum is worth visiting if you are on the island-especially if you have a Helsinki Card. Exhibits are interesting but descriptions are mostly in Finnish.

Military Museum's Manege (Sotamuseon Maneesi) consists of two buildings in Suomenlinna Island Fortress. The exhibition tells about Finnish war history. If you are interested in military history, this may be "the must" sight for you. I didn't like it so much.

Unless you have the Helsinki card or a major war buff I wouldn’t tell people it’s a must see. Nonetheless the museum has interests artefacts covering 20th with artillery and uniforms. 10-15 minutes and you’ll be done.
