Sport is the most inclusive phenomenon in Finnish society. The fully renewed Permanent Exhibition of TAHTO tells the stories of sports that helped to build our nation.

The Story of TAHTO

The new exhibition is enlivened by versatile and unique audiovisual contents that guide the visitor from story to another and emotion to another: from the Helsinki Olympic Games to the world of e-sports, from excitement through disappointment to joy for victory. The exhibition brings to you the heroes of Finnish success sports, such as track and field athletics, Formula One racing and ice hockey, as well as Finnish people who climb mountains, jump from airplanes or negotiate rapids and rails.

Changes in the means of transport and communication have revolutionised our understanding of the world and way of life. In sports and physical culture the leaps taken by technology can be witnessed in the materials of clothes and equipment, structures of facilities and our ways of following sports. This exhibition follows the development of sports-related technology from the early 20th century to the present day. Open 29.1.–30.10.2022
