Welcome to the journey through light years! The exhibition gives people of all ages an opportunity to learn about the wonders of space and the history of the Observatory building.


Designed by architect C. L. Engel in collaboration with Professor F. W. A. Argelander, the Helsinki Observatory was completed on Thtitorninmki Hill in 1834. The Observatory now functions as the astronomy visitor centre of the Helsinki University Museum. The Observatorys exhibition gives people of all ages an opportunity to learn more about the history of the building and the wonders of space.

Available to rent for meetings and celebrations, the Argelander Hall and East Rotunda in the Observatorys east wing are idyllic venues for a variety of functions.
