The '''Artillery Museum of Finland''' (''Suomen Tykistömuseo'' in [[Finnish language|Finnish]]) is a special military museum dedicated to the history of the [[artillery]] from the 15th century to the present day. It was located in [[Niinisalo]] from 1977 to 1997. In 1997 it was relocated to [[Hämeenlinna]].

A museum dedicated to the [[field artillery]] was discussed in [[Finland]] already in the 1930s but the war years put an end to that discussion. The idea was revived again in the beginning of the 1970s. A possibility of establishing the museum seemed feasible but the location was problematic. Proximity of some large artillery [[garrison]] was considered best for the museum.
In the heart of [[Satakunta]], in Niinisalo, a suitable building was found. An empty school of Saloharju was rented to [[Tykkimiehet Association]] by the borough of Kankaanpää. The large artillery garrison of Niinisalo was placed quite near. The museum was founded in the 2nd July 1977 in [[Niinisalo]] under the name Artillery Museum (''Tykistömuseo'' in [[Finnish language|Finnish]]). The great public did not, however, quite find its way to the museum, probably because of its remoteness.
A campaign for finding a new location was launched. [[Linnankasarmi]] at [[Hämeenlinna]], with its vacant barracks, begun to feel attractive. The new Artillery Museum was opened to the public on the 12th of May, 1997.
The name of the museum was changed 1.1.2004 to The Artillery Museum of Finland.
==Location and opening hours==
The Artillery Museum of Finland is located at Hämeenlinna in the Linnakasarmi area. The buildings of [[Linnankasarmi]] date back to the Russian regime, to the [[Grand Duchy of Finland|Autonomy 1809–1917]]. The construction of the barracks started in 1850 and was completed in 1913. The archaeological committee values Linnankasarmi quite highly as a traditional military area and prehistoric site because the medieval town of Hämeenlinna has once been here and its remains are still under the barrack yard. More over, [[Häme Castle]] is right next door and its century's long tradition includes also artillery.
The Artillery Museum of Finland is open all year round
24.8.-31.3 open from 11 to 17 and 1.4-23.8 open from 10 to 18
In the museum there is also a cafeteria run by the volunteer women who work with conscripts.
==Permanent exhibition==
The permanent exhition displays in three floors the history of artillery in Finland and the military history on the nation.
==First floor==
On the ground floor of the main building the birth of our artillery centuries ago is on display. The story proceeds from the [[War of Finland 1808-1809]] through the period of [[Autonomy]] to the [[Finnish Civil War]] and to the [[Jaeger movement]]. A [[muzzleloader]] called Helvig, a cannon dating back to the War of Finland 1808-1809 is one of the guns worth mentioning. On the centre passage of each floor there are projectiles from different periods and different guns.
==Second floor==
The second floor brings the visitor to the times of the Winter and Continuation Wars. The firing methods of the field artillery and of the subjects connected, admirably demonstrate the high technical know-how of the Finnish artillery. The study of the world-famous Artillery General [[Vilho Nenonen]] is also in this floor. The proto type of the noted Nenon – camera is on display in this room. The floor of the artillery veterans ends with the present time and with its objects. Special branches, such as artillery intelligence, communications and survey activities are placed on this floor. On display is also the uniform of [[Väinö Myllyrinne]], the largest Finnish soldier ever at 226 centimeters some 7 foot and 5 inches tall.
==Third floor==
The third floor displays the life of the Marshal of Finland, [[Carl Gustav Emil Mannerheim]] and for example the honorary gun, a Finnish 105 H 37 light howitzer on which gun carriage Mannerheim was escorted to the eternal rest in the winter 1951 is on display. Also is shown the life in the Finnish army after the second world war and the technological development of artillery is also given special consideration.
==Gun hall==

The gun collection of the museum is unique, the most comprehensive in the Scandinavia. As far as it is known there is no other museum outside Russia with a collection on Russian and Soviet artillery equipment as exhaustive as this. The amount of the pieces in the museum is now 90 different cannons plus heavy grenade launchers and rocket launchers. In the gun hall are located the rarest guns in the museum.

I've lost my bank card <a href=" ">wellbutrin sr rxlist</a> But it was as the grumbling, dowdy Lou Beale that she really came to public attention, and she maintained that her authenticity in the role was down to her childhood memories of the East End: &ldquo;She&rsquo;s such an interfering old busybody, but I knew a lot of women just like her when I was a girl. They&rsquo;re the sort of characters you never forget for as long as you live.&rdquo;
