New brochures have been made for the Helsinki City Rescue Department’s Fire Museum and Civil Defence Museum. The brochures have been designed by the manager of the Fire Museum Jari Auvinen, coordinator Johanna Hakola from the Rescue Department, and Greta Nikkilä and Pekka Kyrenius from the Civil Defence Association of Helsinki. Graphic design agency Guassi Oy has provided the graphic look. The brochures are printed in Finnish, Swedish, English, German, and Russian.
The brochures are available at the City of Helsinki tourist info at Pohjoisesplanadi 19, Virka-info and Virka-gallery at the City Hall at Pohjoisesplanadi 11-13, the Fire Museum at Korkeavuorenkatu 26, the Civil Defence Museum at Siltavuorenranta 16 B, and all of the Helsinki City Rescue Department’s fire stations, or they can also be viewed on the Rescue Department website.
The Fire Museum is open on Wednesdays and Sundays from 12 noon to 4 pm. The museum may also open to groups, by prior arrangement, on Tuesdays during the day, and on Thursday evenings. Visits to the rescue station’s tower on Erottaja are primarily for groups and by agreement for individual visitors on Wednesdays and Sundays between 4 pm and 5 pm.
The Civil Defence Museum is open from September to May on Saturdays between 10 am and 2 pm. At other times, the museum can open by agreement. Entry to the museum is free.
