2007 Permanent Exhibition
29 May 2007–25 October 2015
The 2007–2015 Permanent Exhibition of the Sports Museum of Finland presented the history of Finnish sports from the 19th to the 21st century. Memorable moments were featured in film clips in the Kino Nurmi video theatre and in audio recordings in a sports jukebox.
The upper floor of the exhibition was dedicated to the Olympic Games, with the Helsinki Games of 1952 naturally occupying pride of place. One of the most popular features was the Virtual Viren running simulator, where visitors could challenge the Olympic champion Lasse Viren on the last 200 metres of the 5,000-metre final at the Montreal Games of 1976.
