The Museum of Military Medicine

Opened in 1983, the Museum of Military Medicine is in a red-brick building from the early 1900s next to the Hennala barracks area in Lahti. The exhibits present medical treatment and care in the Finnish armed forces during the Second World War and in peace time with exhibits of objects, photographs and statistics.

The museum's library of military medicine, archives of photographs and office provide additional services. There are only few similar museums in Europe. Together with the Museum of Military Music, the Museum of Military Medicine is an interesting attraction in a unique military barracks setting.
