History comes near in the Helsinki Bites exhibition, allowing the visitor to experience the past of the city with all of their senses in many different points. “I remember that, that’s just what we used to have!” many visitors may exclaim in many different spots.
In a 1950’s home built for the exhibition, one can try out how it feels like to laze around in a steel string bed and browse through an old Anttila catalogue. The favourite shows of the time play on the radio. The big music stars of the era, such as Olavi Virta and Tapio Rautavaara, can naturally also be heard.

The exhibition also showcases the miniature model of Helsinki of 1878, a dear item that many residents have been missing. The City Museum ordered the model in the 1920’s, and it was exhibited in the Hakasalmi Villa until the 1980’s. It now illustrates the changing city in the new museum.
