The Finnish anti-aircraft defence museum presents the development of Finnish anti-aircraft defence all the way from 1925 to today. It showcases a globally unique and diverse collection of anti-aircraft systems, and, for example, a MIG-3 fighter that was shot down in 1941.

The museum hosts two large exhibition halls, a service centre, the so-called 'Kapteenin puustelli' - Captain’s house - an official military residence from the 1700s and the oldest building in Tuusula, as well as an extensive outdoor exhibition area.

The Tuusula exhibition hall presents the birth of anti-aircraft systems in Finland, alongside the time after the war, from automated firearm systems to modern ballistic missiles. The ‘Helsinki’ hall presents wartime anti-aircraft defence equipment from the Finnish Winter War to the Lapland War, while ‘Kapteenin puustelli’ hosts an exhibition on the military heritage of Tuusula along with a cabinet for meetings. The outdoor exhibition area showcases equipment from an anti-aircraft rocket battery action station.

Opposite to the entrance to the anti-aircraft museum, is Klaavola Museum of local history and culture. It is open during events and by appointment only. 

A cafe and a small museum shop are open  for public.
