Suomenlinna Centre is located in a central place on the islands of the Suomenlinna Sea Fortress. Suomenlinna Centre welcomes visitors all year round and offers a variety of services. It is a combination of Suomenlinna Museum, museum shop and a café. Temporary and permanent exhibitions of the museum offer information and interesting perspectives on the history and present of the fortress. The museum shop offers i.e. books, post cards, old maps, posters and Suomenlinna and Helsinki themed souvenirs. In the cafeteria visitors can buy refreshments and enjoy a cup of warm coffee in the wintertime. The guided walking tours of the fortress also start from the Suomenlinna Centre.
There is a 5-10 min walk from the HSL ferry pier to the Suomenlinna Centre. In 2022 from May to September, FRS Finland operates to Suomenlinna, from Lyypekinlaituri pier near the Old Market Hall. The boat stops closeby at the Suomenlinna Centre pier at Tykistölahti. Suomenlinna Centre is open all year, nearly every day.
