The Helsinki Univeristy Museum, aka The Arppeanum, has a lot going for it. It’s part medical museum, a pinch of dental museum, a dash of veterinary history, a sprinkle of Finnish history, and a few drops of natural history; but for me, the delicious cream top is the Mineral Cabinet. When we were in Helsinki in September, I honestly think I could have spent 3 days taking pictures of crystals held up by metal tongs. I present to you here a sampling of some of my favorite stunning geological displays.
I wish I knew a bit about metalworking, I would recreate these displays in a heartbeat.
The Arppeanum building itself ain’t too bad neither.
