Sibeliuksen syntymäkoti (Sibelius birthplace)

Sibeliuksen syntymäkoti (Sibelius birthplace) Review

Hämeenlinna's secondary school has educated many famous Finns, among them composer Jean Sibelius (1865–1957). The only surviving timber house in the town center is the Sibeliuksen syntymäkoti, a modest dwelling built in 1834. The museum staff will play your favorite Sibelius CD as you tour the rooms, one of which contains the harmonium Sibelius played as a child.
