The maximum size of the group is 20 persons and the tour lasts approximately 45 minutes. The tour takes the group into the various floors of the old library building, so we recommend that possible reduced mobility issues are discussed already when booking the tour.

Groups can enquire about guided tours at the National Library of Finland by sending an email to  

kk-opastukset@helsinki.fi

The message must include the following information:

  • Language preference
  • Objects of special interest to the group (for example, history, architecture, collections, services, research)
  • Date and time
  • Group size
  • Contact information
  • Other special wishes

Guided tours cost 50 euros and they can be arranged in Finnish, Swedish, English or Russian. At the moment we can only accept card payments, no cash. An invoice can also be arranged, but there is an extra charge of 10 euros.

Guided tours are organised on Tuesdays and Fridays, 3pm-4pm only.
