Sports Culture Center TAHTO

Tahto is the Finnish word for ‘will’. The success story of Finnish sports was not built with technology or equipment but with a strong will. We are here to respect and continue that story. TAHTO Center for Finnish Sports Culture offers unique experiences and viewpoints on sports and physical culture.

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.

Unique museum collections include 35,500 objects and 500,000 photographs. Library is one of the largest sport libraries in the world, containing 30,000 books and thousands of volumes of magazines. The archives contain more than 2,000 shelf metres of documents from sports organisations, clubs and private individuals. All this constitutes the national collection of Finnish sport.

Open daily except library and archive closed on Sundays.
