Nordea Bank Museum

Step inside the charming late 19th century Art Nouveau office! Admire the decorative inlays on the wall panels, marvel at old items like the snurra and the cheque validation device, and take a look at the bank manager’s office with its gold scales and double desk.
Situated on Aleksanterinkatu, Helsinki’s traditional banking street, the museum showcases the history of Finnish commercial banks preceding Nordea starting from 1862.
The changes that have taken place in banking in the course of centuries are reflected in many fascinating items. Do you remember the first cash machines plastered with instruction labels? What is your favourite among the numerous piggy banks?
Multimedia presentations illustrate the development of banking technology and provide office presentations. Also displayed are bank TV commercials bearing an amusing retro appeal in the eyes of the modern viewer.
