The museum's office is located in the Main Building of the University of Helsinki, right in the heart of the city. The Helsinki Observatory on Observatory Hill (Tähtitorninmäki) and the University’s Art Room in the Porthania building also operate under the University Museum’s auspices. See our exhibitions and collections online!

Due to the renovation of the University of Helsinki Main Building, the main exhibition of the Helsinki University Museum is currently closed. We will open a new permanent exhibition as well as a temporary exhibition in new premises in the University’s Main Building towards the end of 2023. The Helsinki Observatory is open. The Art Room's autumn semester 2021 begins with online teaching only.
