The museum's strategy opens up the definition, identity, main goal, methods, and general and specific values of the museum.
The Mannerheim museum is by definition an authentic home museum which promotes both the Finnish and international understanding of Finland and Mannerheim. The key message is that the Mannerheim museum aims to function primarily as a professional museum.
In its history view, the Mannerheim museum raises the interplay of patriotism and cosmopolitism and uses methods of biographic history. Collections that form the body of the museum activity allow organisation of events and special exhibitions, as well as, more broadly participation in today’s societal discourse.
The museum wants to act as a presenter of diverse historical imagery, to create a balance between political history and cultural history, and to act as permissible and inspiring of all kinds of Mannerheim productions.
