Collections of Objects
The collections of the Sports Museum include over 30,000 objects from different sectors of physical culture and sports. The oldest item is an ancient ski dating from 2,500 years ago, the newest ones are sporting goods of the present day.
The Museum has acquired its collections as donations. Many illustrious names in Finnish sports history, such as Paavo Nurmi and Jari Kurri, have donated their prizes and equipment to the Sports Museum. Donators are not necessarily elite athletes, however: the Museum collections also include equipment and clothing of ordinary people who have practiced sports. If you want to make a donation to the Sports Museum, please contact the staff.
