History of Vantaa from prehistory to the present day
Welcome to familiarize yourself with the history of Helsinge Parish, rural municipality, township and present-day city of Vantaa through photos, objects, archives and cultural heritage sites.
You will get to examine the different layers of Vantaa's history: archeological excavation photos will take you back long into history, whereas aerial photographs will show you the changing city from above. In between there are, for instance, objects, photos and drawings of the art-nouveau pearl Håkansböle manor, Leonardo da Vilhu's treasures, significant built cultural heritage sites and plenty of other things.
You can use the images published on Vantaa City Museum's Finna service freely, also for commercial purposes. Nevertheless, the permission of the people appearing in the photos will be required for advertising. You must also mention Vantaa City Museum and the photographer (if known) in connection with any image you use.
