It was the nice trip from Helsinki to Tikkakoski! Two bombers, Brewster and Me-109 ...

Nice place. The amount of information in English could be larger and directly displayed and not via some extra leaflet. But I still enjoyed the museum.

One of those technical museums in which you look (and feel) at actual exhibits and not huge signs. Made with a lot of attention to detail. Definitely a 10/10.

Interesting place with many historic and newer aircraft related to the Finnish airforce. Well worth a visit, but without young unruly children please!!

Château des Ducs de Bretagne

The Château des ducs de Bretagne (Castle of the Dukes of Brittany) is a large castle located in Nantes. It served as the centre of the historical province of Brittany until its separation in 1941. It was the residence of the Dukes of Brittany between the 13th and 16th centuries, subsequently becoming the Breton residence of the French Monarchy. Today the castle houses the Nantes History Museum.

The restored edifice now includes the new Nantes History Museum, installed in 32 of the castle rooms. The museum presents more than 850 objects of collection with the aid of multimedia devices. The castle and the museum try to offer a modern vision of the heritage by presenting the past, the present and the future of the city. Night-time illuminations at the castle further reinforce the revival of the site. The 500-metre round walk on the fortified ramparts provides views not just of the castle buildings and courtyards but also of the town.
