Sibeliuksen Syntymäkoti

Hämeenlinna, Finland

Composer Johan Julius Christian (Jean) Sibelius was born in Hämeenlinna in 1865 and was schooled here, but the town makes surprisingly little fuss about it. His childhood home is a small museum containing photographs, letters, his upright piano and some family furniture. It’s a likable place, although uninformative about his later life. Concert performances on summer Sundays are free with an entry ticket.
