Tamminiemi, Helsinki

Tamminiemi Villa is located in Meilahti adjacent to Seurasaari museum island on a beautiful park estate which used to be President Urho Kekkonen's official residence during his period in office between 1956 and 1981. In those days it was known as the centre of Finland's political and governmental life. Tamminiemi is furnished the way it was in Kekkonen's time.

What's up now at the Museum:
