Plan your visit

You can take a trip to Vantaa's past right from the old Tikkurila Station. The cozy building is home to Vantaa City Museum's temporary exhibitions whose subjects cover the region's history for 10 000 years. In the course of years, there have been exhibitions on, among other things, suburban rock'n'roll, sexual minorities, crime, and Vantaa celebrities. Admission free.

The oldest tile station building in Finland, designed by provincial architect Carl Albert Edelfelt, was completed in 1862. The station represents German Romanesque style, influenced by Byzantine churches. Waiting rooms for different passengers were located in the ground floor. The waiting room for the gentry was separated, while the peasantry's waiting room was a general passage to the platform. The station manager lived in the second floor, and the railroad officials and their families lived in the third floor. The exterior of the building has remained almost unchanged. The first exhibition in the station building took place in 1990.

Arrival

The old station still has excellent accessibility: the trains of the main track stop at Dixi station center in Tikkurila, which is 300 meters from the museum. Tikkurila's bus station is also at Dixi.
