Götän Maailma

Imagine a store turned magical cabinet of curiosities where you can encounter upon your trip anything from teeth, skulls and horns, to insects, stuffed animals and random old photographs …
Inside Out Helsinki found this modern day wonder-room in the form of Götan Maailma, or The World of Ms. Göta – which, for the anecdote, is named after owner Thomas Hamberg’s  great-aunt who collected herself quite some odd things. When it was initially created in 2011, Götan Maailma was selling random vintage things, but then quickly realized that customers were on the lookout for more morbid and odd objects. The store then decided to concentrate on medicine and natural science antiques, mainly dating back from the 1800s and early 1900s.

The store is filled with nice details, and has a kind of deathly atmosphere to it. Many objects date from the Victorian era and are from collectors abroad. 

Good to know: they also rent objects, so if you need a stuffed bird for your photo shoot, they’re your man. 

The shop's future plans are to continue to develop the rental activity, as well as expand the space to the little room behind the store, where events, from concerts to shows, and even weddings, will be able to take place.
