The small museum building near the Metso library is filled with mostly unknown works of local artist Joseph Alanen. He used tempera painting technique with light, shady colours to create mythical pictures of our national epic Kalevala. The chosen style resembles comic book characters with strongly painted outlines and extreme positions. The impressive Lemminkäinen and the Great Serpent was finished in 1920 just before his early death at the age of 34 in the current world epidemic Spanish fever.

The museum building is an old granary designed by a famous architect Carl Ludvig Engel in 1838. It was opened as a museum to the public in 1931. On our visit, there were the MangaMania! exhibition on the ground floor and the Osamu Tezuka – The God of Manga exhibition on other floors. So there was plenty of Manga to be seen. Manga is Japanese cartooning, comics, and animation. For Manga fans, it would have been heaven. For us, the most interesting work was the rubber duck outside the museum building. Luckily, we had a free entrance with the Finnish Museum Card.

When I was there, downstairs had a really rather boring exhibition drawn from the city’s collection, but upstairs there was a gem – an installation based on the 1918 uprising in Tampere, with old photos superimposed on the same places today. So good that I bought the catalogue even though it was in Finnish and Russian!
