A Satellite in the Suomenlinna Toy Museum

As of April 2017, Finland has entered the Space Age by launching into space its first own satellite, Aalto-2. To celebrate the occasion, the Suomenlinna Toy Museum has launched its own little satellite, a selection of space toys ranging from the 1950’s to the 1990’s. The newly-opened chamber includes also futuristic toys relating to science fiction television shows, with the emphasis on the British producer Gerry Anderson’s Space: 1999 (Moonbase Alpha, 1975–77) and also on his other shows, such as Thunderbirds. The exhibition will run until January 7, 2018.
